Landscape Photography Workshop: Devil’s Dyke and the Fulking Escarpment

A beautiful summer’s day for our landscape photography workshop for Royal Photographic Society members at Devil’s Dyke and the Fulking Escarpment. We started by photographing at Devil’s Dyke and capturing various compositions of the valley in the South Downs, as clouds passed overhead to create patterns of light and shadow across the hills.

We then walked across the Fulking Escarpment, along the South Downs Way to Perching and Edburton hills. Most fields have been recently harvested and hay bails and strong ploughed lines were key composition elements for the group.

I love this small group of trees on top of Edburton Hill. A well timed shot as clouds passed overhead meant I could capture them just as the light hit them.

After stopping in the Devil’s Dyke pub for a quick bite for dinner, we then headed back out for golden hour and the spectacular sunset over the Fulking Escarpment. The light was slightly diffused by some thin cloud but the light still created great shadows across the hills for some great pattern in our shots.
