Spring is Upon Us

During these times of lockdown that the UK finds itself in at present due to COVID-19. As we are all self-isolating at home and self-distancing when we do have to go out, it is even more important to take a moment to enjoy the natural world around us.

Following Government Social Distancing guidelines we are currently allowed to go out for daily exercise. So we are going out for walks as part of our daily exercise outings. During these exercise outings we are trying to make the most of our walks to take a moment to connect with nature. As Spring is upon us, and It can’t be officially British Springtime until the daffodils are in full bloom. The park opposite us is always a wash with daffodils at this time of year. So during one of our recent walks I took a moment to capture these beautiful signs of Spring.

We all can take the world around us for granted from time to time, its time to take a moment and enjoy our world and mother nature.

Photography vs Lockdown

I’ve not been posting to my website as much of late. As for one reason or another I’ve not had the time or the motivation to blog. So I’m going to try and use some of my new found extra spare time to blog more and spend more time on my photography. I’ve previously only posted photo blogs and then only posted when I’ve had some photos that I particularly wanted to share. Going forward I shall try and share some of my thoughts as well. With this in mind I have added the new blog category of “Behind The Lens”. So here we go…

One thing that I have learned from the current Corona Virus lockdown that we all find ourselves in. Is while most of us are social isolating and or social distancing it’s important to take the time to enjoy the little things in life.

For me one of those little things is to try and spend more time enjoying nature. Although we are all on lockdown, we are still currently aloud to go outside for some form of daily exercise (walks, cycling, etc) as long as we adhere to the governments Social Distancing guidelines. Where we live we are quite lucky that we are surrounded by various parks, woodlands etc. So some form of nature is no more than 10 minutes away from our house. We have been trying to make the most of this and once a day taking some time to get out & enjoy nature. Our garden is also providing us another way of getting back to nature as well as providing some great photographic opportunities thanks so some of our garden wildlife visitors.

The above video was taken during a walk around one of our local parks. I was trying to capture the birdsong as well as the daffodils (sorry not the best sound quality). I also managed to get some nice photos of this year’s daffodils that are already in full bloom. I’ve not posted those up yet. Watch this space.

Springtime

First Daffodils of Spring

Spring is definitely in full bloom with daffodils starting to appear along in parks, gardens, and along hedgerows. Confirming spring has most certainly arrived. The weather wasn’t the best, a typical rainy spring day, but the flowers managed to brighten up what was a rather wet and misty day. Hopefully I can capture some more shots on a day when the weather is brighter.
