I’ve always loved nature even when I was small, I dreamt of being a marine biologist, I don’t know where the idea came from, I didn’t live by the sea or anything like that. I really enjoy taking natural world photographs and photographs of the landscape, capturing the beautiful surroundings and fleeting moments that are gone moments later. Within relatively easy walking distance of home I have the lovely Lowndes Park and bits of Pednor Valley with all sorts of wildlife including badgers, foxes and the distinctive red kites.
One of my ambitions is to still buy a canal boat and explore some of the UK, at the moment the nearest I get is going on short walks around the canals near Chesham (Tring, Aylesbury, Rickmansworth, Hemel Hempstead). Once my leg improves I’m hoping to get out and explore some more. I especially like the canal near Marsworth Reservoir in Tring. That’s where the canal bridge, lock keepers cottage and two canal landscape views photographs were taken. The nearest postcode for SatNav’s is The Angler’s Retreat Pub, HP23 4LJ.
These are some of my personal favourite natural world photographs I’ve taken over the years.
