This forthcoming photographic essay captures in photographs and text the authors use of natural history to cope with three months of lockdown between March 23 and June 21st 2020.
The photographs were taken during daily exercise largely on foot but also on short bicycle rides from his home in Peterculter North East Scotland. They reflect the author’s life long love of natural history. The accompanying blog puts the pictures in context and reflects the ongoing struggle to endure the stresses of confinement. The book is liberally scattered with quotes from natural history writers. It is hoped the book will have wide appeal to the many people forced into exploring unfamiliar territory and finding unexpected pleasures therein.
