Mindfulness

I've been doing a lot of walking lately and I find it quite soothing and relaxing to take a break at least once every day and get some fresh air to clear your mind. It's also a great opportunity to take a breather and be mindful of things around you, and when you do take the time to look around it's really interesting what you actually see among the things that we look at every day, but rarely pay attention to. I've taken so many photos lately during my walks, that I wanted to do a picture post of some of the things that have come my way during my walks this week. We have just passed Valentine's and it may still be grey and rainy but judging by these photos, Spring is well on its way and I bet that in just another two, three weeks everything will be in full bloom and I for one can't wait.
 
 


Hope you all have a wonderful day and maybe you'll have a chance to stop and take a second to look at what's all around us! Xx

  1. You really have some beautiful scenery around you. And your photography of landscapes is absolutely stunning. You have some shots here that I'd be proud to hang on my wall. You're so lucky to live close to somewhere so beautiful - I live in a completely urban area with no where like this, and it makes me sad :(

  10. Hi Charlotte, I hope you are well <3 Those are stunning pictures, especially the one with the Robin as they are tricky bird to photograph. I might sometime when it warmer go up to Surrey Hills and do some walking there, that would please my husband more then me!
