Mountain Hare photography workshop

The Mountain Hare photography workshop is aimed for all levels of photographers.

Join us for our Mountain Hare photography workshop in the Cairngorms National park to photograph some of Scotland’s Mountain Hares in their natural habitat.  Mountain Hares are indigenous in Scotland and have three moults during the year.  In their second moult, from October to January, the coat changes from russet brown to white or grey and then back to brown from February to May. note that both tail surfaces remain white.  Mountain hares can become very conspicuous if still in their winter coats when the snow melts or if there is unseasonable snowfall.  Our Mountain hare workshops cover all seasons with the winter season being the most strenuous.  Whilst photographing the Mountain Hare is our main priority there may be the opportunity to photograph other creatures such as: Red Deer, White-tailed Eagles and Golden Eagles.
