The workshop will begin with a visit to the iconic Llyn Padarn lone tree where we will experiment with different compositions and shutter speeds. We will then travel through the Pass of Llanberis to Llyn Gwynant to photograph some of the spectacular mountain scenery from the banks of the lake. Our next location will be Tryfan where we will take a leisurely walk past mountain waterfalls with expansive views over the Glyders to Llyn Idwal and the Devil’s Kitchen. Depending on the fitness level of the group we can then progress a little further to photograph two lovely lone trees jutting from the rocks above the lake.
We will then head nearby to the Ogwen falls which cascade down the mountainside into Llyn Ogwen. There are tremendous views of the Llyn with Tryfan in the distance. It really is a magical view with lots of compositions to choose from.   

The day will end at around sunset.

The footpaths we will be following are uneven and can be slippy when wet. I would recommend some form of grippers attached to wellington boots or walking boots to provide grip. The ground can be boggy in wet weather. There are some uphill sections but they are mainly on gentle gradients.

Lunch arrangements – bring a packed lunch.

Please bring: warm clothing, spare trousers to change back into in case you get wet, wellington boots, grippers for the boots, walking boots

This is a group C event for up to eight participants.

Please meet in the car park on the shore of Llyn Padarn (just off the A4086, the main road that runs along the shore line) near the intersection with Market Street.
