Route 66

What a trip this year on Route 66. 2800 miles with a detour to Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon all the way from Chicago to Santa Monica. I was accompanied by Tracey, Mick, Fran, Sandra and Mike on this one and we had a fantastic time. It was unseasonably colder than normal but we had mostly clear skys all the way. You can check out all the pics following this link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotocourses/albums/72177720303954579/with/52520850649/

Here are a few of my favourites below. We are taking a break on this trip so next years will be my last for a while. If you would like to book check out our web site https://www.fotocourses.co.uk/America/route66.html

Venice 2023

After a three year absence due to covid we finally got back to doing our Venice course this year. Thanks to Sarah, Maureen, Norman, Mike, Howard and Andrew for making the course so enjoyable. We had great weather, our usual relaxed schedule with lower than normal crowds to contend with. It was nice to see the Bridge of Sighs and Rialto without the scaffolding. Here is a selection of pics from the trip. The rest can be viewed on Flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotocourses/albums/72177720303251059

This trip was fully booked and we already have bookings for 2023. If you are interested please check out our web site: https://www.fotocourses.co.uk/Venice/4_Day_Venice.html

Northumberland

Holy Island

Our second trip up North this year to the county of Northumberland. Stunning weather, great company and some beautiful locations. We will be running our next trip in September 2023. Check out our website for more information: https://www.fotocourses.co.uk/Northumberland/northumberland.html

Silverstone Formula 1

This years course was attended by Katie, Mick, Tim, Simon, Peter and Oliver. A great day out with changeable conditions which meant the first practice session was a bit of a wash out. However the second session made up for it with cars running for the full hour and with F2 and F3 practices and qualifying there was plenty to photograph. Our roving grandstand tickets gave us some great views over the catch fencing. We have very limited availability on our Goodwood revival course so book now if you want to reserve a space. https://www.fotocourses.co.uk/Festival_of_Speed/Revival.html

Virgin Cruise

What a trip, A 7 day cruise around the Med visiting Barcelona, Toulon, Portofino, Sardina and Ibiza for free using up my Virgin Airmiles. The Valiant Lady was a fantastic ship and Virgin have a very different way of cruising. 20 fantastic eateries onboard with a large selection of 1st class restaurants. Plus our ship was nowhere near full thanks to Covid putting off passengers.

Florence & Cinque Terre

Just returned yesterday from my latest trip to Italy. We had great weather for the whole trip which meant stunning views of the 5 towns from the water and some great street shots in Florence. Check out the images below which are from my latest batch on Flickr.

We will be running our final trip next year to Florence on the 28th – 31st May 2023. https://www.fotocourses.co.uk/Florence/4_Day_Florence.html
