14/07/2018 – Pfaueninsel – Landscape / Flora und fauna

This beautiful island in the river Havel was first settled thousands of years ago, and is now a UNESCO world heritage site.

Originally called “Rabbit-Island”, the island now takes it’s name from the many free-roaming peacocks living there, which together with an iconic ivory ruined castle, a lake, water buffalo, and gardens, make this the perfect summer’s day out.

Photo opportunities:
Reached by ferry, this has to be the ideal location for some very picturesque nature and landscape photography.

Public transport:

This is a bring a camera and shoot event, suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced photographer, in fact anyone who wishes to improve their photography skills through practice, the main emphasis is on developing creative compositional skills rather than technical expertise.

If possible please bring 2 prints of previous work to the event, so that we all have something to pass around, discuss and critique during the refreshment break.
This service is available in all branches of Rossmann and prints can easily be made there and then in approximately 5 minutes – 13cm x 18cm Premium Fotoabzüge mit weißem Rand = €0,23 per print.
A tablet or smart phone is unfortunately not a suitable alternative.
