Nature loving country bumpkin, raised in England's beautiful Peak District.

In 2012 I had thought about taking part in the 365 challenge for years but always worried that I wouldn't be able to keep it up and would struggle to find something photo worthy each day!
I decided to have a go and I actually achieved it - I took a photo every day for each of the 366 days and didn't use a single filler (though that meant I uploaded plenty of bad photos!).


In 2013 I continued the 365 project but didn't worry too much about taking a photo every single day, I've allowed a few fillers, but limited this to within a week of the date they're uploaded to, and finished year 2 with 304 photos taken on the day and 61 fillers. I've learned quite a lot here and seen some fantastic photographs and places...


In 2014, my third year here, I did 365 properly again and did not use any fillers. It's become a habit now! I'm a bit addicted and I love how this project encourages me to go out to play on days when I wouldn't bother if I didn't need a photo!


In 2015 I completed Year 4, without fillers, combining 365 with 30 Days Wild in June and then what became 366 Days Wild after that... at the end of 2015 I am7 months into a Wild Year, due to complete at the end of May 2016.


In 2016 I completed another year here, completing 365 Days at the end of May and then doing another 30 Days Wild in June! I'm going into 2017 and my sixth year hear without even questioning it as my daily photos have just become habit now! Here's my 2016 video...


I don't even have any editing software on my computer, let alone have any idea how to use it and I'm not very interested in fancy effects or tinkering with my photos. I like capturing memories more than anything so my photos are unedited, except for occasional cropping.
