Pyrenees Flower Photography
Saturday 2nd – Saturday 9th June 2016
The central French Pyrenees are home to a wonderful range of wildlife ranging from Eagles and Vultures right through to many endemic flowers such as Pyrenean Saxifrage and Spanish Iris. On this, our second specific photographers’ tour to the region, flowers, insects and the magnificent scenery will be the main aims as subjects for our cameras. However, large raptors occasionally pass low overhead and our route might take us close to Alpine Marmots in the vehicle, so having a longer lens handy may prove useful.
We often have superb weather in this part of the Pyrenees but we have to bear in mind that the mountains make their own weather. At times we may have mist in the valleys and, as we drive to somewhere like the Cirque de Troumouse or the Col du Tourmalet, we may end up above the clouds! Then, the prospect for stunning landscape photography truly exists. Alternatively we could be concentrating on photographing lovely mountain flowers or fabulous Alpine meadows set amongst mountains or valleys. The opportunities to capture fabulous images are vast.
