Nature, Wildlife & Outdoors

Welcome to the 'I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos' Blog

At least once a month we get out as a group on an organised outing of some description, and being a group of people who enjoy taking photos we usually come home with a very interesting and generally appealing selection of photos.  This blog is a record of where we have been and the photos we took at the time.

Shining Tor

Usually when we try to plan a photo walk based on an actual walking route it takes us at least 3 hours longer than it would any normal walking group since we keep stopping to take photos.  As it happened for this particular walk to the summit of Shining Tor we managed to make it in almost the right amount of time, despite getting lost on the way back.

This may actually have been one of our longest ever walks, nearly 8 kilimeters.  The views when we reached the top were spectacular, but a real challenge to do justice on a photograph; but we gave it our best shot.

Oh and if anyone fancies taking the same route that we did, the link to the route is on the link below.  We definitely recommend printing this route and bringing it with you.  Oh and watch out for the 'faint grassy path' on step 13/14 - we totally missed this path and ended up in the bushes as you'll see in our photos below.

Langsett Reservoir

February 2014 - It's been a few months since we had a good old fashioned walk outdoors so we set a date and met up for a walk around Langsett Reservoir. It didn't rain much but it was dull and cloudy and extremely windy, but at least we got to walk a few miles and meet a few new people along the way.

Here are a few of the photos we took on that windy winter Sunday morning.
