About Don

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in The United Kingdom. I feel that more than anything else, nature, and the objective things around us, convey a speech and a message we always need to listen to and follow. This kind of listening is life-giving and there is a certain form spirituality about it. In this blog, through the the photographic image and accompanying words, I’ve tried to share this experience as simply as I can. There is an underlying beauty in nature we all need to see and experience, especially in this day and age as we struggle to save our planet. Most of my shots are taken with a Fujifilm XT100 camera and my Iphone. I’m no professional Photographer, but I do enjoy outdoor walks with my simple gear trying to capture what I see and experience.

Lavender Fields

Every year we treat ourselves to a visit to the lavender fields. It’s like a pilgrimage we make. To stand and gaze upon them is such a satisfying and pleasurable experience. Purple is a strong colour and I find that if you look at the field long enough, it’s as if everything around you takes on a purple hue. The image I took here shows one of the numerous fields. It was a good day.

 

Leybourne Lakes

The melodious sound of birdsong filled the air, but another sound gently joined the chorus – the soft rasping of Bulrush leaves locked in playful duels with one another.

Back

Just to say that I’m sorry about not visiting all the blogs I follow, and also for not posting any new posts. I haven’t been well for the last week or so, but am now well on my way to recovery. Look forward to re-connecting with you all.
