We didn’t know if we would have enough time to see Kensington Palace while we were in London, but we were able to squeeze it in on day 2!⠀ ⠀ I learned so much at Kensington Palace. We walked through an exhibit about Queen Victoria and we were able to see the room she was born in! Did you know Queen Victoria wore black for the rest of her life after her husband died?⠀ ⠀ We also walked around a few bedrooms, the gallery, the staircase, and the gardens!⠀ ⠀ P.s. since I technically walked in Prince William and Princess Kate’s house (their actual apartment is seen in the last picture), I’m part of their family now..... right? 😉

I spy a castle. A short skip and a hop drive up to Raby castle last weekend in County Durham. This is a view from the walled garden which is huge and of course I was in heaven prancing around with my camera. The castle is made of separate towers which were added over time,very similar to Scottish ones I saw on my visit last year. So it was designed for safety and defence and not practical to live in - for instance the kitchen is in a completely different tower to the dining room as it would have been a fire hazard. That must have meant a lot of cold food being served up or maybe they ate salad?! An interesting fact is that the opulent dining room has a kind of emergency loo in the corner designed so that the gentlemen could relieve themselves over cigars and port and not have to leave the room and possibly be discussed! Oooh the intrigue ey?! It’s very beautiful inside and I’ll share some pics on my stories. ————————————————————————— • • • • • #rabycastle #historylover #castles #countydurham #countydurhamphotography #walledgardens #historichouses #historichousesassociation #lovecastles #mytinymoments #excellentbritain #yourbritain #thisprettyengland #gardensofinstagram #gardenofengland

Peekaboo, I see you Windsor Castle. So you can't make out the flag from this photo but it was the Royal Standard, which means the Queen was in da house 👑 It was quite exciting walking around inside knowing that Her Majesty was in another room. #captaincharleyswindsor #castlesofinstagram #windsorcastle 🏰

Tall trees Some of the tall evergreen trees, bathed in light as the sun goes down. I'm currently enjoying a week away at Centerparcs at Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire. It's great to actually spend some time away as a family, after spending so much of May away from home (and them) on various work and school commitments. Aside from Monday, the weather has not been with us, but that's one of the great things about Centerparcs, is that there's so much to do here that the weather doesn't actually matter (and of course, just have a BBQ in the rain anyway as we did on Tuesday!). I'm hopeful I'll be able to get some different shots in over the next couple of days of the fantastic scenery, particularly at sunset (fingers crossed) ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #centerparcs #centerparcswoburn #mycp #woodlandretreat #woodland #talltrees #uksunset #uksummer2019 #woburnforest #bedfordshire #visitengland #igersherts #igershertfordshire #britains_talent #bestukpics #ukpotd #yourbritain #capturingbritain #raw_uk #uk_shots #ukscenery #1ukshot #uk_greatshots #ordinancesurvey #ukreal #thisprettyengland #genuinebritain #fotocatchers #fiftyshades_of_nature

Where are your favourite places in and around our town? June in Tenterden turns Bells Lane into the perfect picture postcard street... roses around the door and blue skies behind the church tower. If you take away the TV ariels, this view hasn’t changed that much for the 250 years. As you get closer to the high street the original medieval alleyway comes into view. If you don’t know Tenterden that well, look for the entrance to Bells Lane next to Cafe Rouge ... and step back in time, but don’t forget your camera! #historicstreet #independentshop #highstreet #visitkent #tenterden #explore_britain #history #thisprettyengland #photosofbritain #heritage #visittenterden #coffeebreak #shopping #countrytown #gloriousbritain #chocolatebox #britainshiddengems #picturepostcard #wishyouwerehere #weekendgetaway #weloveengland #countryliving #scenicbritain #uk_shots @uk.real @britishvillages @seisbest

Poppies popping up in the fields of barley. I took this picture yesterday afternoon when I was out walking with Freddie. Rain wasn’t far away and I was feeling quite wistful for some reason, I don’t know why. Maybe it was the poppies, as I stopped to ponder on their fragile beauty and the sadness associated with them. Maybe I was just tired and wanted to get home before I got soaked to the skin. Either way, I am grateful for these delicate, papery flowers that adorn our hedgerows every year, they have a way of getting under my skin and making me reflect on life. Life is good in my own little world., I have poppies and fields of barley to walk in and big skies and a dog with a wagging tail. Simple and slow. X

. • This hare was so hunched down in the grass if it hadn't been for the amazing light shining on it I would probably of walked straight past. It was scared at first but didn't run off so I waited and snapped a few shots. Then I decided to take the tripod out and snap a few more shots. In the end i got all of the shots I wanted and just walked straight past with it still sat in the grass 👌🏼🐇 . • #wildlifephotography #hare #wildlifeplanet #uk_shooters #canonphotography #thisprettyengland #beautifulbritannia #wildlifefreaks   #wildlifefriend #bbcspringwatch #animalelite #nb_nature_brilliance #country_features #ukpotd   #greatbritainshots   #discoverearth   #ukhubs   #wearegreatbritain   #excellent_nature #gloriousbritain   #excellent_britain #natgeoyourshot #britains_talent @bbcearth @wildlife.realm • .

A cheery yellow on this sunny Thursday. Long may it last! I found this hypericum in a pot outside the church at Melchbourne a few years ago. Someone was having a clear out of plants and put them there for people to help themselves. It's now planted in the garden after being grown on in a pot and it's flowering so well this year. #hypericum #stjohnswort #shrub #flowersofinstagram #gardenersworld #mygarden #fiftyshades_of_flowers #capturingbritain_flowers #explore_floral_ #thisprettyengland

I had a feeling that yesterday’s grey and wet day would result in a red @sky at night. I decided to hedge my bets and stay at home to keep an eye on the sky. When i could see the clouds slightly clearing I hot footed it to my local go to place - Lake Pier. It’s the place I caught the photography bug and will always be special to me - and she never let me down. ... ... ... #sunset #lakepier #hamworthy #pooleharbour #poole #bestofpoole #pooletourism #dorset #lovefordorset #exploredorset #igersdorset #dramaticdorset #visitdorset #capturingbritain #britains_talent #explore_britain #bestukpics #bestunitedkingdom #ukpotd #ukscenery #ukshots #uk_greatshots #gloriousbritain #1ukshot #nature_perfection #nature_brilliance #sky_brilliance #swisbest #yourbritain #thisprettyengland

The city of Liverpool was founded in 1207 and it was once the “Second City of Empire”, eclipsing even London for commerce at times. Liverpool’s waterfront is a designated World Heritage Site. That puts it on par with the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China! Liverpool has one of the most impressive collections of museums in Europe. Liverpool holds the Guinness Book of Records title for being the Capital of Pop. More artists with a Liverpool origin have had a number one hit than from any other location. And of course, Liverpudlian legends The Beatles changed the face of popular music.

- UPPER SLAUGHTER - The lesser known, considerably quieter but equally picturesque neighbour to Lower Slaughter, Upper Slaughter should not be missed and is well worth calling into if visiting the central Cotswolds region. Similarly to it’s neighbouring village the settlement lies on the River Eye. The Anglican village church is dedicated to St Peter. Of historic note is the fact that Upper Slaughter is known as a ‘Thankful Village’ - that being a village which lost no men during the conflict of the First World War. Additionally the village lost no men during World War II either. This unusual feat in Britain has led to the village being honoured with the title of a ‘Doubly Thankful Village’. The manor of Upper Slaughter is first recorded in the Domesday Book as far back as 1086. The prevailing Slaughter family acquired the manor in the 12th century. Shown in my throwback shot taken in March is the ford which crosses the River Eye. This was traditionally negotiated by horse and cart and horse drawn carriage. Nowadays it can be crossed by 4x4 vehicles. Alternatively a narrow pedestrian stone bridge crosses the stream upon which I am standing as I composed the shot! Upper Slaughter is yet another example of a picture perfect Cotswold village that begs to be explored. #cotswolds #igerscotswolds #upperslaughter #agameoftones #britishvillage #thisprettyengland #picture_to_keep #moodygrams #river #yourbritain #scenicbritain #gloriousbritain #britains_talent #bestukpics #englishcountryside #1ukshot #lovegreatbritain #photosofbritain #placestovisit #clouds #watchthisinstagood #persuepretty #traveling_uk #total_united_kingdom #gloucestershire #ig_europa #hey_ihadtosnapthat #kings_villages #roamtheplanet #houses_phototrip

Meanwhile, back in the UK the poppies are going nuts 💐🌷🌸🌼🌹🌻 It has been an amazing wildflower season in the UK, particularly for the very Instagram-friendly bluebells and poppies. I was lucky enough to catch the tail end of the bluebells and the start of the poppies so I happily snapped my way through a memory card. The poppies were such a bright red out of the camera that I had to de-saturate these people to look authentic. I'm curious to hear what your favorite type of wildflower is from wherever you're from. . . . . . . . #radicalsnaps #laphotographer #landscapes #poppies #wildflowers #beautiful #red #redpoppies #poppyfield #aftertherain #ukshots #explore_britain #beautifulbritain #scenicbritain #gloriousbritain #thisprettyengland #getoutdoors #genuinebritain #westmidlands #fabulousshot #photooftheday #bestoftheday #mthrearth @mthrearth @canonusa @resourcemag @radical_snaps @marvelous_shots @bravogreatphoto @fabulousshot @photohunted @visit.britain @lovegreatbritain @radical_snaps

After what seems like weeks of rain it was wonderful to step out of work and into sunshine! My walk home took a little diversion and I ended up spending the evening walking around uphill nature reserve. Bunnies hopped and swifts swooped and it felt like I was the only person in the world! Refreshed and windswept but even just a few hours of sunshine is enough to make me feel happier! #northsomerset #uphill #summer #thisprettyengland #igerssomerset #explore_britain_ #sunset #walkingforthesoul #happiness #walkingbritain #hikinguk #coastal #westonsupermare #northsomersetlife #visitnorthsomerset #walkingnorthsomerset

I recently invested in a rather lovely journal to motivate me to read more and note down interesting ideas. I’ve begun by exploring the relationship between humans and nature. • One article by Enrique Salmón (2000) on the concept of ‘kincentric ecology’ is particularly interesting. They’re part of the indigenous Rarámuri and discuss their relationship with nature as being one of total interconnectedness and integration with all life, similar to the relationship we may have with our close relatives. They have the belief that all life “shares the same breath” and that their “spiritual, physical, social, and mental health depends on their ability to live harmoniously with the natural world.” Really, it makes perfect sense. No life is more important than another, humans included. Everything has its own role. • I recommend checking out the article if you have the time, let me know if you struggle to find it. What interests me is how we can try to, in a sense, improve our relationship with nature while living within modern cities. Perhaps we’re not as separated from nature as we may believe at first? Many of us share our homes with the occasional spider, for instance 🕷🕸😬 • #nature #kincentric #ecology #artofvisuals #ourplanetdaily #naturephotography #plantsofinstagram #naturelovers #thevisualscollective #solarcollective #greenlover #plantstagram #instaplant #plantlove #greenfingers #botanicalpickmeup #botanical #visitbristol #bristollife #bristol247 #tramblebristol #bitsofbristol #bristol_lens #swisbest #visitengland #thisprettyengland
