The summer season sees us through the lazy hazy days of June, July and August. It incorporates the longest day, picnics and sea-swimming, not to mention a very active wildlife scene, summer festivals and holidays. Gardens are in full bloom and the opportunities for photography are unlimited. The Milky Way is at it’s most visible in the Northern skies but you need to stay up late to capture it!

Our feature photography trip this season will be our annual, informal, photographic workshop – this year to Whitby, North Yorkshire *.

Famous for its connections to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Whitby has always embraced its association with Gothic culture which is reflected in the town’s quirky streets, harbour and the cliff-top Abbey ruins. Close by are the beautiful North York Moors and the evocative steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. This includes the station featured on Heartbeat – Goathland station. We have specifically chosen this venue for the proximity to RSPB Bempton Cliffs where – at this time of year – there will be wonderfully photogenic gannets, puffins and guillemots in abundance.
