Picos de Europa Mountains Spain – Photography Course & Holiday

Picod de Europa

The Picos de Europa is one of the few truly unspoiled areas of Spain that is still unaffected by large numbers of tourists. The contrasts within these 300 square miles of spectacular natural beauty that link Cantabria and Asturias are amazing. Looking up you’ll see a series of dramatic rocky peaks rising to well over 8,000 feet, their sharp jagged edges clearly defined against the pale blue skyline. Small mountain villages are tucked away in the higher slopes almost completely isolated. Looking down, the first signs of colourful mountain flowers begin to appear, increasing in frequency the lower you look amongst the rolling hills of lush vegetation. Deep gorges that plunge vertically down into deep river valleys, sparkling lakes, and magical forests make this a photographers paradise just begging to be explored.

ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY

Photography Holiday

The Picos de Europa is one of the few truly unspoiled areas of Spain that is still unaffected by large numbers of tourists. The contrasts within these 300 square miles of spectacular natural beauty that link Cantabria and Asturias are amazing. Looking up you’ll see a series of dramatic rocky peaks rising to well over 8,000 feet, their sharp jagged edges clearly defined against the pale blue skyline. Small mountain villages are tucked away in the higher slopes almost completely isolated. Looking down, the first signs of colourful mountain flowers begin to appear, increasing in frequency the lower you look amongst the rolling hills of lush vegetation. Deep gorges that plunge vertically down into deep river valleys, sparkling lakes, and magical forests make this a photographers paradise just begging to be explored.

The park is full of endangered specis including the golden eagle, the European brown bear and asturcon, a shaggy wild horse. Chamois, a species of goat-antelope, are common. Due to the total ban on hunting here, these creatures have little fear of humans, and will usually allow you to plenty of opportunities for good camera close ups. Up in the skies, apart from golden eagles, other birds you can expect to frequently catch a sight of are Griffon Vultures,  peregrine falcons, short-toed eagles, black woodpeckers, snow finches and literally hundreds of other smaller species.

A wonderful five days capturing images in the mountains and villages of the Picos de Europa in Northern Spain. Join Imber Court Photo Training on a journey to a place that you will never forget and let us help you explore some of the amazing photographic opportunities that are available in this truly unspoilt location.

The days will be spent exploring the local area and visiting many locations where you will capture magnificent images including the wonderful morning mists floating above the landscapes, splendid mountain vistas, beautiful flower meadows, abandoned villages and wildlife like Griffon Vultures and perhaps even the almost extinct Cantabrian brown bear!

Whether you are a looking for photography for beginners or you are more advanced,  the Picos de Europa in the north of Spain are full of photographic opportunities around every corner. Our professional photography trainers will always be on hand to offer advice and assist with your photography.
