A passion for nature photography

Want to take a few moments to relax and de-stress from your busy, hectic life? 

Tag along on my nature photography walks and I'll introduce you to the sights and sounds of the British countryside. Join me as we visit rural villages, woodlands, ponds, lakes, nature reserves and the coast.

Together we will revel in the excitement of spotting something new, perhaps even rare! And enjoy the beauty of the common species that many don't take the time to study up close.

Wildlife and nature photography doesn't always involve travelling far afield.  There is a simple delight in finding flora and fauna close to home.

For me, that is the East of England and I would love to share it with you through my country walks and the stories behind the photographs I take of the natural world.

My favourite walks

As the weekend arrives, my camera bag is packed and ready for a hike! I also fit in shorter jaunts before work, on weekday mornings. The weather has to be pretty awful to keep me indoors.

Some places I return to time after time, like Barnwell where I photographed the lovely Mandarin duck shown below, while others are once in a lifetime adventures. I learn more about nature photography with each ramble.

If you can't visit my favourite spots in person, you can still enjoy them through my photographs. 

There is always something new and exciting to experience in the natural world, whatever the season. Be it a majestic bird of prey or a beautiful butterfly: a stunning mandarin drake or a tiny insect.

Nature diary

Here at naturewalkswithcarol.com I'll document where I've been and what I've seen. Think of it as my nature scrapbook or diary.

Hopefully, I can inspire you to go out and enjoy the natural world around you. Maybe you can pick up some tips from the way I photograph the things I see on my journeys and put them into practice yourself.

Below is a video showing some of my favourite photos from 2018, I hope you enjoy watching it.
