Description:

Join us for a remarkable 5-day / 4-night photo tour capturing the year’s best meteor shower!

This year, we’re heading to Bodmin Moor, Cornwall – our dark sky destination of choice for the Perseid Meteor Shower.

Return transport from London plus accommodation in Cornwall is included.

The Perseid meteor shower is one of the most highly anticipated events in the astrophotography calendar, where over 100 meteors per hour can be seen on warm summer nights in some years.

With the shower visible over several nights, we’ll have the opportunity to take unique shots of the sky at various locations while practising our Milky Way photos. Additionally, we’ll keep an eye out for the rare and unique phenomenon of noctilucent clouds during the tour.

Our base for this tour is Haye Cornwall, a vegan farmstead retreat for rescue animals including ponies from the moor, beach-ride donkeys, and battery hen chickens who all deserved a better life. By staying at this location, we’ll be helping with the costs of the animals’ welfare.

We’ll be situated just a few minutes’ drive from Bodmin Moor – the largest part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and designated an International Dark-Sky landscape in July 2017. The Hurlers standing stones, a Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age series of stone circles over 2,000 years old, is one of our location options.

Nearby are several old derelict tin mines which are perfect foreground elements for night sky photography. Scaling up to The Cheesewring, an interesting arrangement of stacked smooth stones above the Moor is another photographic option.

During the tour, we’ll also have the opportunity to explore other attractions, such as the rapids of Golitha Falls and the rugged south coast beaches. If the skies prove to be troublesome for astrophotography, we’ll still be able to make the most of our daytime by exploring the unique and stunning landscapes and seascapes, along with the local wildlife and farm animals.

Our astrophotography workshop offers you comprehensive knowledge and technical skills to capture awe-inspiring shots of the Perseid Meteor Shower. We’ll teach you how to plan your shoots, what camera settings to use, and how to enhance your photographs with post-processing software.

You’ll gain fundamental knowledge, confidence, and experience capturing striking photos of the celestial bodies above. Delve into the intricacies of night sky photography with us and enrich your astrophotography skill set!
