In July I went on holiday with my family on a cruise to Norway, Iceland and Ireland. I had a fantastic time and had so many interesting and incredible photography opportunities throughout the holiday. From the stunning waterfalls to the glaciers and the wildlife.
As some of you may know photography has become not just a hobby for me but has helped me with my on going mental health recovery journey. Photography helps me to ground myself in the hear and now. I also use my photography as a resource for when I am feeling low. Looking back at some wonderful memories that make me smile!
I thought I would share with you some of my photography snaps from my holiday this year.
This year I did an adult learning course in Art and Photography for adults with disabilities at college.
I enjoyed doing the art but I found that I really love photography especially nature and wildlife photography. Photography helps me a lot with my mental health as it helps me to ground myself in the here and now. Another brilliant thing I have found is by taking photos of the great outdoors is it has helped improve my mood and can sometimes help me when I am feeling anxious.
Throughout the year I was able to develop my skills in photography and photo editing. So I thought I would share with you some of my top photos I have done on the course.
Autumn has arrived
A fallen leaf
Keeping each other company
Coming into bud
Spring has come
On the lookout
After taking this photo I used editing software to turn the photo into black and white.
From doing this course I have found that I really enjoy doing photography and I hope to do some more photography projects soon!
