Do you take photos? Of course you do...

Have any of you out there been lucky enough to capture nature at it's most striking? If you have, we would love to see some of your pictures. Email your (low resolution) digital images to me.


If we get enough images and decide to make it a feature in the magazine, we will be in touch about how to send us higher resolution pics that are suitable for printing in the magazine. We might even find a prize for the best one!


We are sure that there are loads of talented photographers out there in Blighty just itching to show their pics to a wider audience. So don't be shy, have a dig through your albums and show us what you can do!


We have put a few examples of some of our efforts below, in order to give you a bit of inspiration…
