Welcome to my blog. I live in the south west of Surrey with my partner and daughter, our dog, house rabbit and snake. You’d think the rabbit would be nervous, considering, but actually she’s remarkably relaxed.
I’m interested in the natural world and in photographing it. I’m also quite interested in which bits are tasty to eat. I love watching wildlife and birds, but I don’t have the photographic kit to get spectacular photos of them, so my photos tend to be of trees, plants and fungi. I really enjoy trying to capture the colours and patterns I see there, often at macro level. I use a panasonic lumix TZ30, by the way, which takes great shots but obviously has the limitations inherent in a digital compact. It fits beautifully on my belt or in my bag though, meaning I take it places I wouldn’t be able to take a heavier camera. I’m happy to settle for mid-level/mediocre photography, whilst still capturing the stunning beauty I see all around me.
I also enjoy learning more about the natural world I see around me every day. This blog is a place for me to document what I’m discovering, and my photographs. I’ve no idea whether this will be of any interest to anyone else, but it would be nice if it is. Feel free to comment, subscribe, follow or whatever!
