Have you ever wanted to learn about capturing the beauty of the Exmoor landscape and dark skies at night? Then, join local photographer Mark Johnson for a photography experience to remember.
You’ll learn how to make the darkness come alive with your camera, capturing the stars, moon, lights, and landscape depending on the conditions.
You will need Tripod, a camera and warm clothes, but no experience is necessary.
We will meet at 6 for a hot drink and a pasty from the Buttery tea-room before heading out to capture the dark sky. Tickets are £15 for adults and £10 for children– booking via the National Trust website.
This event takes place as part of Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2022.
