Racton Ruins Photo Walk FREE 30/05/19
Time & Location
About The Event
Racton Monument (known locally as Racton Ruin) is a folly situated on a hill in Racton, West Sussex, England with views over Chichester Harbour and to the Isle of Wight. It was commissioned by the 2nd Earl of Halifax, possibly as a summerhouse for the nearby Stansted Estate, though an alternative theory suggests it could have been constructed so the Earl could watch his merchant ships dock at the nearby port village of Emsworth. Another theory is that the Earl built it as a viewing tower to watch for his son's return from an ill-fated voyage.
2 Hour Photo Walk to the Racton Ruins. We will be meeting at the ruins, so find parking and walk up the hill to the ruins itself.
- Guidance provided throughout the walk, on both a one to one and group basis (depending on numbers), to maximise your potential.
- Camera and lenses - doesn't matter what you have. I can work with most camera manufacturers (I use Canon and Sony - So I will know more about them). If you have a wide angle lens, that would be beneficial.
- Tripod - Definitely essential. most landscape images will require long exposure, You'll need something to stand it on to leave running.
- Food or means to buy food (This is not supplied) - snacks and water.
- Bring a torch - after the sun has gone down, it will get dark fast and the walk back may be hazardous.
Not so essential gear;
- Off camera shutter release - this is beneficial (essential if you have to go over 30 sec exposure) as it is getting dark, you will need to up your shutter time.
- Filters - If you have any, bring them. If it's not dark enough and you want a long exposure, Bring an ND.
Anything else is a bonus.
Parking is free in any of the areas you can find along the road. There is a few spaces at the end of the Lane, and some in the church courtyard a little south.
