Milky Way Photography Night at High Force

Milky Way Photography Night at High Force

Friday 26th August 2022 from 21:45pm to 23:15pm

The High Force Hotel
Alston Road, Middleton-in-Teesdale, County Durham, DL12 0XH

Spend your Friday evening of the bank holiday weekend learning how to photograph at night at the stunning location of High Force with an expert tutor from Photography Experiences.

The workshops are limited to twelve people and occur at the optimal position and brightness of the Milky Way when it reappears after the summer. You’ll be able to shoot from positions not usually available to our guests, e.g. on the rocks and the ledge at the side of the plunge pool (subject to conditions at the time).

Everyone is welcome, from beginners to people who’ve dabbled with night photography to more experienced photographers.

For more details and to book this event, please visit the Photography Experiences website.

This event takes place as part of the Festival of Astrophotograpy 2022, a series of workshops across northern England and online events during the end of August and the first week of September.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
