Meeting Place: The Car Park/Entrance Hut - Sat Nav Postcode PE33 9BP

Details: For this group walk, we'll be visiting beautiful Gooderstone Water Gardens in West Norfolk to capture the grounds as they burst into life for spring. The gardens include 4 ponds, 13 numbered bridges, waterways, a nature trail and bird hide (if you're lucky, you may see a Kingfisher!). There is a tearoom on site and plenty of benches for those who just want to sit, relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. Gooderstone Water Gardens is the perfect place to visit and escape for a couple of hours. After a brief introduction and some gentle direction, you'll be free to wander the gardens and photograph things in your own creative style. I'll be making my way around the group to offer advice on compositions/camera settings and to answer any questions you might have.

Photo walks are aimed at beginner and hobbyist photographers. Due to the mix of abilities attending, walks aren't designed to be in depth tuition sessions but more of a chance for friendly like minded people to get together to practice photography. Things only get as technical as the questions you ask. All camera types are fine, smartphones included.
