In addition to judging the monthly Breathing London competition, landscape and wildlife photographer Robert Canis will be leading workshops during the course of the project to inspire Breathing Londoners.   This third workshop will has been timed to co-incide with Autumn and hopefully some lovely autumn colours. 

Today our workshop will take us to Waterlow Park, a 26-acre green space bordering Highgate Hill and Highgate Cemeteries.  This is one of London's hidden gems.   Hilly by nature, the shape of the terrain lends itself to photography along its winding paths.  Surrounded by trees and other similar vegetation, its three ponds make it a haven for wildlife.  It has many specimen trees, flower beds and borders, well-kept open areas as well as wild spaces, not to mention the views over the City of London.

We will meet at 10.45 at St Joseph's Church Gate on Highgate Hill for an 11.00 o'clock start.  The easiest way to get here is to take the tube to Archway and walk up the Hill, admiring the statue of Dick Whittington's cat on the way!  (If anyone feels that they do not wish to walk up the hill, they can take a bus for one or two stops).  We will finish with lunch in the Park (if the cafe is open) or one of the many local cafes nearby.

For anyone wishing to extend their day, there are lots of opportunities to continue to Highgate Cemetery and or Highgate Woods and Hampstead Heath.




Attendance is strictly limited to 10 participants.
