Pictures from DSLR photography course at Stourhead, Wiltshire
We love teaching photography courses at Stourhead, as it gives an amazing range of scenery, nice sandwiches and ice cream. The gardens are often described as the jewel in the crown of the National Trust, and if you like landscape gardens and you’ve not seen Stourhead, prepare to be amazed.
As you can see there is a great variety of things to photograph, and even on a beginner’s photography course the pictures can look very good. The one danger at Stourhead is that it was built as a series of views, so if you’re not careful everyone takes the same pictures. However, as you can see – no danger of that here – a nice set of varied and interesting pictures of a beautiful location. The Autumn is probably the best time of year to go, with Radio 4 broadcasting live from there every year on the best day for Autumn colours. Naturally the trees were chosen from all over the world to give the best greens.
