The Long Spring: places, people and nature
Between February and June 2016 I tracked the arrival of spring in Europe, from the Mediterranean to the Arctic. I started on the North African coast, and visited some of the most interesting wild places in Spain, France, the UK, Sweden, Finland and Norway. On the blog page of this website I’ll be describing wildlife, places, traditions, culture and issues I encountered following the front edge of spring.
The Long Spring is also the working title of my forthcoming book, provisionally scheduled for publication in early 2018, by Bloomsbury.
My main website, NATURAL LIGHT, is where I write about nature and the artists who are inspired by it.
