With COVID-19 continuing to wreak havoc worldwide and no idea when the opportunity to travel widely will again be possible, I've decided to focus actively this year on finding, and enjoying, the natural beauty that is readily accessible.
I've thought about doing a 365 day photo challenge before to improve my photography skills, so if not now, when?
Week 1 has been a very wet, rainy week and it's been a beautiful contrast to the fires that were devastating the country just 12 months ago.
As the challenge begins I'm fortunate to be minding a friend's house who has an amazing yard - there are lots of trees and lots of wildlife, so it's a great source of inspiration for the start of this #photography challenge.
I'm planning to share my favourite photo from each day on a weekly basis, with no edits other than cropping.
Update 10th Feb - there have been instances where I felt additional edits were needed and I've noted that in the post for the day. Although it's an excellent exercise to push myself to take and share photos with minimal edits, perhaps I should have been more open to post-production editing from the beginning.
