North Wales and Anglesey night sky and nature workshop

Come join Tim Wells on a 3 night Astrophotography and Nature workshop , based in north Wales capturing  the beautiful scenery of the Anglesey and Snowdonia area.

With the well known dark Skies Tim will take you to his favourite locations and help you catch the stars. (weather permitting)

On a cloudy or moonlit night Tim will help you capture some lovely sights and  still go through with you how he captures the stars at night.

 

This workshop offers you an opportunity to explore the beautiful areas of the Anglesey and some areas of North Wales whilst learning how to capture the light between dusk and dawn. We will aim to capture some stunning sunsets then into the blue hour for some light trail fun.

Then we will  head to one of the Dark sky areas in the  hope for clear skies to photograph stunning starlit landscapes along with the opportunity to capture the Milky Way.

This will be a hands on in the field learning workshop, from the moment we start, and as I'm sure we are all aware of the potential welsh weather please come prepared... particularly with wet weather gear.
