Tripods will be
essential for this PED, as will a quality torch.
I'll be on hand throughout the day to answer questions, and to help you get the best from your camera.
To maximise our chances of capturing a sunset, we'll
be starting the weekend around lunchtime on the
Friday. Either on Friday or Saturday evening
we'll be trying our hand at "wire wool" on
one of the tors.
On Saturday & Sunday we'll be exploring Dartmoor, driving
around, stopping where we find interesting things.
The hotel for this trip will be Travelodge
Okehampton Whiddon Down. You'll need to make your own
booking directly with the hotel.
