“2020VISION is the most ambitious nature photography project ever staged in the UK. It aims to engage and enthuse a massive audience by using innovative visual media to convey the value of restoring our most important but often fragmented natural habitats – to show that healthy ecosystems are not just for wildlife, but are something fundamental to us all.”
The 2020Vision roadshow visits National Trust, Calke Abbey near Ticknall, Derbyshire from April 10th – April 29th 2013.
My previous blog featuring some of the wildlife around Calke Abbey gave a glimpse of the exhibition. Now for a more in depth look. Nice for all ages so worth visiting, oh and it’s outside in the stableyard so dress appropriately x
A wider selection of photographs, none are full frame images of photographers work as I wanted to capture an insight of the exhibition and not duplicate shots that other people have taken time to create.
I thought it would be interesting to photograph the exhibition in an alternative way with reflections and zoom burst (not done that technique for a while and certainly not without a tripod)
I found it very difficult to choose a favourite, I wonder if that’s what this couple are discussing?
The European Hare (photographer David Tipling) above is one of my favourite shots as it reminds me of my childhood, I also really like the Orange Tip Butterfly as it brings back memories of when my children would try to catch butterflies in the garden, Wobbly Tree Branches (photographer Ross Hoddinott) because they are in a forest close to my home and the Red Grouse contrasting against the purple heather moorland (photographer Ben Hall), just because I love purple.
As with most NT properties there’s a really nice restaurant serving meals or snacks, gift shop and pantry with selection of local produce.
I hope you have enjoyed your armchair visit? Have you already been do you intend to go? Please leave a comment.
