Join Tatra Photography in the highest mountains of the Italian Appennine. This is a true Abruzzo adventure where rugged cliffs and mountain meadows in full bloom surround a harmonious and ancient countryside.
We will look for spring colours among the icons of this landscape. The blooms will be the protagonists of our excursions in the mountains, campions, gentians, anemones, alpine poppies and many other rare alpine species bring colour to the highest altitudes in the mountain massif of the Gran Sasso.
At dawn, we will be on location when the first light illuminates the vast plateau of Campo Imperatore, the “Little Tibet” of Italy, and the major peaks of the Gran Sasso. We will also enjoy the silence and atmosphere of an archaic and unique landscape and also have the chance to enjoy the delicacies of the regional cuisine of the pastoral tradition.
We will also have the chance to photograph the spectacular blooms of cultivated fields, where red poppies and cornflowers blend with white daisies: a classic that never disappoints and always brings great photographic satisfaction. In the evening we can experiment with different techniques to portray the myriad of stars that shine behind mountains and castles.
You will receive a masterclass in photography landscape tuition from our professional photographer Bruno D’Amicis which includes, composition, shutter speeds, apertures & understanding histograms.
All levels are catered for with digital & film so whether you are new to photography, an enthusiast or a seasoned pro looking for a new photography holiday The Abruzzo region of Italy is an oasis of breathtaking scenery which makes this national park a photographers paradise.
