Yorkshire Dales in the summer is perhaps as gorgeous as you’ll see in the whole of the UK. Iconic stone barns that nestle in the corner of seemingly every field all joined together by some of the country’s oldest stone walls while fields of grass are carpeted by lush bright yellow buttercups. Add into the mix stunning pure blue summer skies and white fluffy clouds and you have a recipe for some outstandingly beautiful opportunities to capture the wonderful Yorkshire Dales on camera.

There are the stunning coastal cliff scenes of Melmore Head, White Rocks Beach, Portrush and of course Malin Head where Star Wars VIII The Last Jedi was filmed in 2016. The sea stacks of Great Pollett and Crohy Head, the ruined castles of Dunluce and Dunseverick, the stunning lake of Lough Nacung Upper, the coastal lighthouse at Fanad as well as the legendary and stunning Giant’s Causeway.

The Old Man of Storr, Quiraing, Trotternish, Elgol from which the dominant and mystical Black Cuillin mountain range stands before you.

Derwentwater, Buttermere, Crummock Water, Ullswater and more, Lake District

The Lake District is the UK’s most beautiful National Park and its 12 million visitors a year cannot be wrong. I have acquired an intimate knowledge of the Lake District through many years spent photographing its lakes, mountains and valleys. There are some truly stunning scenery to witness first hand with the camera from the morning mist over Buttermere in November to sunrise slowly rising over Castlerigg’s famous 3,200 year old stone circle, from the calm waters offering clear reflection shots of Ullswater to the outstanding views of Derwentwater from the summit of Castle Crag. You will enjoy three nights accommodation at the stunning 4* Borrowdale Hotel that nestles in the Borrowdale Valley.


Isle of Skye, Scotland

Fairy Pools, Glen Brittle, Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is arguably one of the UK’s most dramatic landscapes. During your time on the island, we will be visiting many of the iconic locations that have helped made Skye famous. The Old Man of Storr, Quiraing, Trotternish, Elgol from which the dominant and mystical Black Cuillin mountain range stands before you.

Glencoe, Scotland

Loch Achtriochtan, Glencoe, Scotland

16th – 19th November 2017 – £795 

Glencoe, Rannoch Moor and the surrounding areas will offer you extensive opportunities to capture such stunning locations as the lochs of Linnhe, Leven, Achtriochtan and Lochan na h-Achlaise, as well as the legendary munros’ of Buachaille Etive Mòr and Bidean nam Bian and the evocative Castle Stalker.


Isle of Harris, Scotland

Traigh Bheag , Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scotland

20th – 26th November 2017 – £1395 

The terrain is quite different on both parts of the island. The Isle of Lewis is located to the north of Harris and occupies the majority of the island and I find the more dramatic views are on Lewis. The sea stacks of Mangersta and Tolsta are quite simply magnificent and reminiscent of those found on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. The iconic and mystical Callenish Stones also greet you on Lewis and on a stormy day can be very atmospheric. Harris on the other hand I find to be more about peace and tranquility with the truly beautiful world famous Luskentyre Beach stretching out on the west coast with its stunning sand dunes and aqua coloured water. The salt marshes of Northton in the south of Harris provide the landscape photographer with ample opportunities to capture them at their best while the 368 metre Ceapabhal fell provides a wonderful backdrop.
