The New Forest, unlike the name suggests, is only partially wooded with huge areas of heathland since the area was deforested in The Bronze Age. It’s hard to escape the mass of pink and purple heather if you drive down the M27 and A31 during the Summer. The open but undulating landscape is transformed into a very photogenic palette of colour. The surrounding scenery is unspoilt and the patches of trees new forest ponies and are plenty to keep a photographer occupied.

The New Forest - Heather at Sunrise

The New Forest, unlike the name suggests, is only partially wooded with huge areas of heathland since the area was deforested in The Bronze Age. It’s hard to escape the mass of pink and purple heather if you drive down the M27 and A31 during the Summer. The open but undulating landscape is transformed into a very photogenic palette of colour. The surrounding scenery is unspoilt and the patches of trees, new forest ponies are plenty to keep a photographer occupied.

The heather should be close to it’s peak for our workshop led by Andy Farrer. The soft morning light is the ideal time to capture the floral foregrounds and well worth the early rise. You’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast before exploring some more shaded parts of the forest before we conclude.

You will benefit from Andy’s guidance on helping you create strong and captivating compositions making the best use of the colours and conditions the day presents for you. The early morning light is often the most rewarding with the brightly coloured heather. Our sunrise location is frequently misty, even when surrounding areas are clear (no promises though).

This workshop will run from 4:30am - 12:30pm, the hearty breakfast and a suitable supply of coffee will help keep you enthusiastic all morning!
