After hearing about a few people in our local area being treated for Lyme disease, I figured it wasn’t a bad idea to write something about it for the magazine. Although awareness of Lyme disease has increased in the last few years, its distribution, scale and effects have been underestimated and I thought landscape photographers as a demographic were probably a category. What I found out about the disease made me glad I had done so and I highly recommend a look. In the UK we think of the outdoors as a benign place to visit but as well as my recent research, a couple of recent cases of people being hurt only a short distance away from their car makes you realise that the more time you spend outdoors, the greater the chances of ‘unlikely’ things happening. We shouldn’t be paranoid about these things but a little bit of awareness and pre-planning could make all the difference sometime.
We’ve had a big spate of Endframe’s submitted in the last month which we’re very pleased with but we’d like to get more submissions for our 4x4 section from our readers. If you have a set of related images you’d like us to publish, please let us know even if you’ve been published before. Both Charlotte and I love seeing our readers images and they give us inspiration to get out taking photographs so keep them coming. Click here to submit

Would the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness be the same if cell phones worked? It would be challenging to enjoy it the same way. The lack of access to social media makes it easier to connect and foster real experiences. more
You may well find that the best preparation for a photographic outing, is to deliberately go unprepared. more
Following on from our previous wander around Cornwall (via a relaxing chair in the Highlands), Joe is talking through some of the images taken on a workshop with David Ward. We cover a few topics including bits of Capture One and Lightroom, the use of Polarisers, black and white conversions and a few other bits and pieces. more
Seeing the images that Verity Milligan shares online, her love of the rural and the remote is clear, but look a little deeper and it’s also apparent that the city that she calls home – Birmingham, UK - is very important to her too. more
The complex notion of man-made settings in relation to their existing natural landscape has thus been misconceived. In a highly urbanised world that we live in, geography has become the modern element for the creation of conflict. more
