Highfield Park Trust will run regular Photography Walks throughout the year and the team would welcome photographers of all abilities at any of these walks. It doen’t matter if you’re a novice, with basic equipment, or an experienced hand, with more professional kit, there will be something for everybody on these enjoyable walks around the park.
The aim is to learn from one another, have a great time and seek to capture the best of Highfield Park for the enjoyment of all.
Each walk will cover a specific part of the park, which will be determined by the seasonal interest. With 82-acres to explore, there is plenty of opportunity to cature some breathtaking images.
Typical locations will included the orchards, the arboretum, the newly planted Hither Wood and the glades within it, the ancient woodland in Winchfield Wood, Monks Meadow, the new wildflower meadows, all of the garden features, be they formal or informal and the ponds at Cell Barnes and by Hixberry Lane. These provide multiple photographic opportunities from landscape to close-up and there is always much sharing of advice and compositions.
There will be two 2 hour walks in 2018, the first on Sunday 29 April and the second on Sunday 30 September both starting at 10.30. Tickets cost £3 and can be purchased HERE. It will be a ticketed event in order to maximise the experience of those that attend. The pictures below were taken by Austin Guest, who is a Trustee of Highfield Park Trust and leads the photography walking programme.
