The play of sunlight at dawn and dusk has always inspired the people roaming the puszta. Poets, writers, painters have commemorated this breathtaking landscape on countless pieces of art. Modern day people can take advantage of cameras – a skilfully composed photograph may well pays homage to the Hortobágy the same way as does a painting. All those interested are welcome to the next outdoor photography course of the series titled ‘In focus – the Puszta’. This time, participants can improve their landscape photography skills. During the tour, you will enter otherwise restricted areas thus gaining an opportunity to see the puszta from a very special angle.

In the morning, you can visit the southern parts of the Hortobágy. This thematic trip is aimed at the morning lights, but you will also have the opportunity to take pictures of the wildlife of the puszta as well as the traditional ways of animal husbandry. Midday rest is taken in the village of Hortobágy, where participants can chose from a wide array of programs. The afternoon trip targets the Nagyiván puszta, where you can try yourself and your gear in the low shafts of sundown.
