The ever-changing kaleidoscope of light, patterns and colours at Pensthorpe Natural Park creates a rich vein of material for budding photographers.

And now pictures taken by students on photography courses at the 700-acre nature haven have gone on display.

The courses are run by Wells photographer Julia Rafferty and have grown from a one-day standalone experience, to a six-week course in each academic term of the year, run in the morning for starter students and in the afternoon for the more experienced.

“Pensthorpe is a photographer’s delight,” said Ms Rafferty. “It has so many inspiring environments to work with all year round; it is amazing. We’re always finding lots of new things to photograph.”

The exhibition is open until Spring 2018 and there is free entry during park opening hours. For information contact Julia Rafferty at
