Hello Nature Chasers and welcome back to week 3 of our #ChasingNature Community. We have enjoyed another brilliant week where we have seen some stunning photos using the Chasing Nature hashtag on Instagram.
Each week I find it difficult to just pick two of my favourite images.
Tamsin and I also join in with the Instagram Community. This is my favourite of the images which I linked up. I took this photo for a local magazine and shared it last week when I reached 1000 followers on twitter. I love it as I was able to get all of us looking at the camera at the same time.
My first featured image from #ChasingNature is by Cardiff Mummy Says. I love this photograph as it really does look like the little one is contemplating whilst staring out at the beautiful deep blue sea. I also love the poem which Cardiff Mummy Says shared with the image.
“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.”
– WH Davies
My next favourite is by Juggling on Roller Skates. I love this image as it is perfectly taken and shows 3 children having fun in nature. Which is what #ChasingNature is all about, enjoying time in the environment around you.
We look forward to seeing more outdoor images in week 4 of the #ChasingNature Instagram community.
