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.

Nature For Everyone


Anyone who follows my photography knows that it is highly inspired by nature. So when I came across the Wildlife and Countryside Link‘s campaign for #NatureForEveryone, it caught my eye. Although I wouldn’t describe myself as an outdoorsy person, I do love getting close to nature. My first memories of properly connecting with nature was also when I first started dabbling in photography. I would head out with my camera to capture sunsets, this then evolved in to exploring local farmland and natural habitats. Today I love connecting with natural world around us.

I feel very privileged to live somewhere that is surrounded by so many green spaces, not everyone is so lucky. As our urban landscapes expand we need to find ways to balance these landscapes with nature. Campaigns like #NatureForEveryone are so important for our well being and the well being of our planet.

Enduring the COVID pandemic of the last 24 months has highlighted the importance of being able to get out and explore our green spaces and to connect with nature. It has certainly helped my sanity as well as being a constant source of photographic inspiration.

As well as enjoying exploring green spaces such as nature reserves, forests, beaches, and parks. I have tried to do our bit for nature by turning our garden in to our own green space getaway. Our love for nature has also made its way in to our house in the form of many house plants.
