Nature is incredibly beautiful and I want to capture it all. I have been a nature photographer for many years and now I want to try other ways to record my experiences with nature. I have long admired those that keep nature journals and the beauty that can be found in these journals. I very much enjoyed the presentation on the different styles of nature journals and I liked them all but I think I am going to start out with a box approach. I think this will help me get started then see what develops from there. This summer I have been identifying the plants on my property and would like to really get to know them and I can't think of any better way than drawing them. I have also been a birdwatcher for awhile and have fun photographing them but like with the plants I want to get to know them even better and again I see this through a nature journal.
