Young trees sprout the fresh green of spring as they line a wandering path through the Forest of Dean. Walkers and mountain bikers have made this track over the years. Sometimes, if it’s quiet, deer can be seen here. They’ll stop grazing and look across with curiosity rather than fear, but sudden movements from humans will send them running. It’s always a privilege to be close to wild animals, isn’t it?
These posts were scheduled to continue the series. I’m offline now, so can’t respond to comments, likes, follows, or questions. Please interact. I’ll do my best to catch up with everything on my return.
In future, I’ll be posting a picture of natural beauty once a week, so, this month will be the last with daily pictures. It’s somewhat overtaken a website I set up to talk about books and writing, and this has taken a back seat for some time.
I started the daily posts at the start of the Covid pandemic, when many people were confined to their homes, unable to get out and enjoy nature. It’s time for me to return to my writing, which also tends to encourage a love of nature, even when the stories may be set in an alien or a future environment. If you want to spread joy in our wonderful planet and encourage respect and responsibility for it, please share these posts on social media (‘share’ buttons below make it easy), comment with your thoughts, and help sustain our environment for the future. Thank you. After all, Earth is our only home.

Or view over 2000 here if you’d like images for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room.
The small fee helps me maintain and buy expensive equipment and software quality digital photography demands. Unlike some artists, I loathe exclusivity and want people to easily afford my work. As it’s easy to
reproduce, treating photography otherwise strikes me as elitist.
