I love mountains with their interesting views, rugged terrain and the feeling of overcoming a challenge, plus I'm a sucker for a trig point. I equally enjoy exploring forests, caves and waterfalls. 

As well as the obvious physical benefits, walking and the outdoors is really good for mental health and so rather than rushing up and down a route I prefer to take my time.

It's a form of mindfulness; being actively aware of the environment, the flora and fauna and how the ground changes beneath ones feet alongside the views.

Its great to really breathe in the air and put worries into perspective.

Here is selection of my favourite photos taken on hikes in the UK, some of which have been used as inspiration or a starting point for my art.
