As the quote from artist Vincent Van Gogh says “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere”, and I am a firm believer in this.

I don’t often get to visit spectacular landscapes or spend hours in nature reserves filled with wonderful plants and creatures, instead most of my nature encounters are confined to the urban jungle much closer to home. Here you do have to look just a little bit harder and keep an open mind but nevertheless there are discoveries to be made.

Other times the beauty is right there before our eyes, it’s simply case of taking a little time out of our busy and hectic lives to really see it.


These images of blackthorn blossoms flowering under the spring sunshine were captured in the middle of a busy university campus.

I wonder how many of the passers by actually looked up from their phones and took the time to appreciate this little peace of beauty?
