As Wildlife Gadgetman I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to work outside regularly but I go through periods where I spend lots of time in front of a computer, and when I say lots of time I mean LOTS! Writing and creating additional content for my blog, designing new projects, interacting on social media, the list goes on.
Don’t get me wrong, I adore what I do for a living but sometimes its important to get away from the screens, get outdoors and have a ‘Digital Detox‘.
One of my favourite ways to detox is to go on an early morning walk to watch the sunrise or and evening stroll to watch the sunset. I’m not totally gadget free of course (!) as I have my cameras with me but at least I’m out in the fresh air, observing some wonderful sights and generally reconnecting with nature.
If the conditions are right I also like to practice my timelapse photography, and boy was last Sunday the right conditions! I had been keeping an eye on the forecast all last week hoping for a reasonably sunny start to the day and checking the weather app on my phone Saturday evening I thought I would give Sunday a go. My planned destination – a stretch of the River Orwell known as the Strand just along from the Orwell Bridge.
