We'll be basing ourselves on the Isle of Skye for 3 nights, exploring different parts of the island
Friday - Whole day on Skye
Saturday - Whole day on Skye
Sunday - Whole day on Skye
On Sunday evening we'll make our way to Fort
William, where as a small bonus we'll spend Monday
photographing in and around the Glen Coe area.
Throughout the weekend we'll be doing long exposures, sunsets, and also astro (night sky) photography. The dates have been planned to coincide with a new moon, meaning the skies will be perfect for photographing the sky at night.
Some of the activities will of course be dependant on weather / clouds.
Places are limited to 10 people.
I have itineraries in mind for all 3 days, however the exact day-by-day plan will be decided nearer the time (perhaps even over the weekend) so we can plan properly according to the weather conditions.
Direct flights from Southampton to Glasgow make it quite an easy location to get to.
To get the most out of the weekend you will need a (sturdy) tripod, a 10-stopper ND
filter and a graduated ND filter or two.
This PED follows on from the Highlands
PED, a week long road trip which will take us
from Inverness, to the Isle of Skye.
