I'm searching for natural beauty and wilderness, while I'm travelling relentlessly to find delightful places and encounters with wildlife. I try to capture the thrill of the moments in photography and words, hoping to inspire others with the love for animals and nature.

That’s awesome!’Continue reading House Sit In Scotland With Chewing Monster→
“No ways! What a stunning view!” We sat in the lounge with the house owners looking through a king-size window directly onto Hunter’s Quai, where Holy Loch and the River Clyde meet.
