A very picturesque 8 mile Sunday circular walk taking in Hartington and Pilsbury Castle in Derbyshire.

Even if it’s a small rock you’ve got to climb it!

Thanks @mountainswithmatt and @ems_and_phoe for a lovely day. Still full after the pub lunch!

Took a really lovely 10k circular walk from Eycott Hill nature reserve to Greystoke forest yesterday evening - the forest was super spooky!

I wouldn’t fancy walking through here once the light has gone! 😳👻💀🧟‍♂️ #spooky #forest #woodland #greystokeforest #lakedistrict #lakedistrictwalks #lakedistrictuk #igerslakedistrict #walking #walkinguk #gloriousbritain #beautifulbritain #landscapephotography #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #gooutside #fujifilmuk #fujixplorer #fujixseries #repostmyfujifilm #thelakedistrict #explore #exploring #holiday

Another wet day today, but a great visit to Aira Force which I’ve not been to before.

Due to recent rainfall the falls were impressive with water thundering down them - a perfect opportunity to use my new travel tripod!

As much as I love landscape photography and capturing the wider scenes of where I’ve been, there’s something magical about stopping and looking a bit more closely at the world around you - especially when in the great outdoors.

There are so many fascinating things to photograph that most would walk straight past without even noticing. I guess that’s part of the magic of photography ☺️📷🙌 #differentview #magicofphotography #fujifilmuk #fujixseries #fujixplorer #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature_brilliance #fungi #fungiphotography #fungilove #fantasticfungi #nature_shooters #peakdistrict #peakdistrictphotography #padleygorge #padleygorgewalk #getlow #visitpeakdistrict #walkinguk #wonderfulnature #getoutside #gooutdoors #lookcloselyattheworld #stopandsee #nature_up_close #natureshots #naturecaptures

It was my first trip to Padley Gorge yesterday, and wow - what an amazing place to explore!

Lush with greenery, the sound of flowing water and wonderful scenery like this - it’s a fantastic place to go for a walk. 👌🏼🥾 #padley #padleygorge #padleygorgetrail #padleygorgewalk #padleygorge #water #nature #naturephotography #woodland #fujifilmuk #fujixplorer #walking #walkinguk #peakdistrictwalks #peakdistrict #visitpeakdistrict #peakdistrictphotography #beautifulbritain #fujixt2 #fujixseries #ifyougodowntothewoodstoday #UniqueDistrict #ukhikers #wearederbyshire #igerspeakdistrict  #gooutside #igersderbyshire #UKHiddenGems #ukscenery #explore_britain #explore_landscapes

I absolutely love photographing wildlife, and being able to now get closer without disturbing animals with my xf100-400mm lens has been a revelation.

I spotted this little guy posing and scouting an area of grass at Dunham Massey before he darted back up a tree and disappeared 🐿

I love this photo from Dunham Massey this weekend.

For some reason, it has a mystical/fairytale feel to it for me and makes me imagine that the deer is guarding this door and what may be behind it 🦌

Meeting these little guys (Burrowing Owls) was so much fun! 
We were lucky to meet them up close in a “keepers experience” - and they had so much personality!

One cheeky burrower even stole my handling glove and wouldn’t give it back! (see the photos)

The bird displays at @hawkconservancy are absolutely fantastic, and my favourite of the day was seeing the owls in flight.

It was brilliant to see some native species in flight and great care has clearly been taken when putting together their flying arena environment. A very enjoyable afternoon!

This is an African hawk eagle (Aquila spilogaster)

They feed on birds, reptiles and small mammals,  and hunt by swooping from a perch, flying low over the ground or stooping from a soaring position. 
They sometimes even follow their prey into a bush on foot.

This bird means business when it hunts!
