So many factors go into producing stunning landscape photography (far too many to go into in one blog post!) but here’s a list of simple things to remember next time you find yourself standing in front of an amazing vista or epic sunset on your glamping break.

GLAMPING FRIENDLY ELDERFLOWER CORDIAL

image

We love a simple recipe that can be made whilst we’re out and about on glamping trips. We made this recently on a trip to Penhein in Monmouthshire from foraged elderflowers and it was a delicious addition to a summer barbeque!

Ingredients

Around 20 elderflower heads

Zest and juice of two lemons

1kg sugar

Method

Boil 1.5 litres water in a big pan and stir in the sugar until it has all dissolved.

Gently rinse the elderflower heads by dipping them in water - check carefully for pesky spiders!

Add the flower heads and the lemon zest and juice to the pan of water and simmer until the liquid is reduced by about half. Leave it all overnight to infuse.

The next morning, strain the liquid through a clean tea towel into a large bowl and carefully pour the cordial into a clean, sterilised bottle for storage.

We’ve had another crazy couple of months uncovering lots more new amazing, quirky places to stay. From a reclaimed horsebox with retro furnishings and a cabin with a rowing boat roof, to a cylindrical pod perfect for biking nuts, there’s treehouses, yurts and something for even the fussiest glamper seeking out the most unusual.

There is a great world-widely known saying - you know the one - “the best camera is the one you have with you”. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone without a camera phone in their pocket or rucksack nowadays, most almost as good as a top of the range DSLR (and a hell of a lot cheaper than forking out for one of those bad boys!). Follow these top tips to get the best out of yours.
