Landscape photography by John Parminter

Under - Art, Geography, Inspiration, Nature, Photography

This spectacular landscape photography by John Parminter offers ever-changing views of mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes of Scottish Highlands and English Lake District.

The breathtaking beauty and harsh ruggedness of Scotland and Wales, home to some of the UK’s most amazing sceneries, is a constant source of inspiration both to explore and photograph.

I was born and brought up in a rural community in the English county of Cumbria, home to the Lake District or Lakeland as it’s sometimes known.

The fells and mountains of Cumbria have always been a big influence on me and I’m regularly walking and running over them either for pleasure or in competition.

After spending many years enjoying the scenery that’s on offer, I decided to try and capture, in images, the natural beauty that I’m fortunate to live and spend my recreational time in.

I’ve had tremendous enjoyment capturing these images and hope to pass on some of their pleasure to you, they are for your enjoyment to view as much as mine.

Acid Test: The Global Challenge of Ocean Acidification

Under - Geography, Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography, Resources, Technology


This groundbreaking NRDC documentary explores the startling phenomenon of ocean acidification, which may soon challenge marine life on a scale not seen for tens of millions of years.

Acid Test was made to raise awareness about the largely unknown problem of ocean acidification, which poses a fundamental challenge to life in the seas and the health of the entire planet. Like global warming, ocean acidification stems from the increase of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere since the start of the Industrial Revolution.

Japan – Heartbeats of Time

Interesting compilation by Trey Ratcliff.

I spend a lot of time thinking about the way memory and sight work together. I don’t think we remember in “pictures” or long videos… but something in between. Perhaps we also sense, at times, more than 30 fps, and unexpected parts of the brain fire when we are presented with certain objects and forms.
