The 2017 editions of the Wild Nature Diary and Wild Nature Calendar are now available from www.wild-nature.co.uk.
Now in their 23rd year, the desk diary (£16) and new compact calendar (£12) - put together by world-renowned adventurer photographer John Beatty - help support the John Muir Trust, which is one of the largest conservation charities in the UK.
The images in both the calendar and diary are designed to encapsualte everything outdoors, whether a stunning landscape shot in Scotland or a close-up of nature's wildlife.
We've featured a selection of the diary and calendar shots in a gallery to give you an idea of the photographic quality.
About the Editor
John Beatty is an internationally renowned travel, wildlife and adventure photographer, based in Bamford in Derbyshire’s Peak District. As Editor and Publisher, commissioned by the John Muir Trust, he says, “The photographs in the Wild Nature Diary and Wild Nature Calendar have been drawn from photographers with direct experience of encounters from the natural world in which we live. Each image tells its own story, both moving and inspiring, showcasing nature through the year. The mixture of stunning landscapes and intimate portraits of wildlife make the diary and calendar the perfect companion throughout our busy lives."
“Over the past year or so I’ve travelled to the Arctic, Nepal, Mongolia and the Galapagos Islands yet I continue to find my inspiration when I return home in the wild places here in Britain."
“Each year, the standard of entries submitted improves and the job of editing becomes more difficult. Publishing the Diary and Calendar is like taking a masterclass in style composition from the very best nature and landscape photographers in Britain. I’m always searching for new talent and am already welcoming entries for 2018."
