Winter Walk

This is my first photo post in quite some time. To be honest it’s my first attempt at photography after recent events (if you exclude taking photos of the cat).

Last week brought a cold spell here in the UK that I wasn’t quite expecting or prepared for. With that came a decent amount of snowfall, between 10-13 inches in parts. When it snows or we have any sort of adverse weather I’m so glad that I work from home these days. These are just a small collection of shots that I captured while out for a walk around our neighbourhood. We ventured out for some fresh air (which may or may not have included a visit to our local pub for some lunch). They’re not up to my usual photographic standard, as they were very much quick snap shot captures while out walking. I have shared some cropped versions of a few of these on my Instagram account, which I might actually prefer the cropped versions. I’m not actually sure why I’m sharing these if I’m not 100% happy with them. I think part of me feels that a more recent photo post was well over due. So this was my attempt at getting back behind the camera to create something to share.

Nesting Ducks

My first photo post of 2022, although I have to admit this one from my archives taken during last Summer. I’ve not had the opportunity to venture out with my camera yet this year, and the cold Winter weather is doing nothing to encourage me.

With Spring just around the corner, I’m hopeful this will bring me lots of photographic inspiration, like these nesting Mallards that I was lucky enough to photograph during last Summer. As I have mentioned before I’m not a fan of Winter or the colder weather that it inevitably brings. So I’m looking forward to getting back to exploring some of my favourite woods, parks, and nature reserves as well as possibly some new locations as the weather hopefully warms up.

In the coming weeks hopefully I will be inspired and have some new nature and wildlife photography to share with you…watch this space.
