A valley in the heart of the South Downs National Park, with Firle Beacon and Mount Caburn guiding the Ouse river down to the south coast. Experience the morning mists rising over the river in the early morning, with views across the beautiful rural countryside and the dynamic lines and contrast from the fall of sunlight across the downs. We’ll capture the sunrise from Firle Beacon and then tour a few viewpoints across the valley.
Participants should bring plenty of morning snacks/breakfast and a packed lunch for a break at around 11am-12pm,
Please bring / wear:
Camera, Tripod and Filters
Walking Shoes, Windbreaker and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions
Lunch and snacks
Torch for early morning
The Downs terrain is quite hilly, so lots of walking on footpaths and hilly, uneven ground. Some rocky paths but most areas are easy to walk on. Expect hiking of around 5-6 miles throughout the day.
There will be a parking charge at Devils Dyke Car Park - currently £3 for all day.
Toilet facilities: other than the nearest bush the nearest toilets will be a short drive away from our locations.
This will be a category B event for up to 6 participants.

Cancellation by us
Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control.
Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.
If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible
Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
