One of the primary goals of my YouTube channel is to share my landscape photography adventures. By sharing my adventures I can hopefully provide a little inspiration to my fellow landscape photographers or even encourage people to get out there and see the great outdoors.
Sometimes my adventures are unplanned, but every now and again I come up with a plan for a grand adventure! The problem is that these grand plans aren't exactly simple to execute. Time is the normally the limiting factor for me.
However, when I read about National Parks Week, I thought it was the perfect excuse to execute one of those grand adventures. My idea was simple. I would visit 3 national parks, in 3 different countries and do it all in one day. Would it even be possible? Let's find out.
As you saw in the video, it is indeed possible. I wouldn't exactly recommend it though. It was a lot of driving and a very long day. But I sure did enjoy it! The locations I visited were stunning, and that was only 3 of the 15 national parks in Britain.
If you haven't visited a national park before, or it's been a while, I really recommend that you check out the National Parks website as there is sure to be one near you. I'm really lucky as I have Dartmoor on my doorstep. The national parks are a valuable resource, so if you have some time it's also worth considering spending some time on your local national park as a volunteer. You can see how I got on one year volunteering on Dartmoor here.
I really hope you enjoyed this video. If you are looking for a bit more detail on the locations I visited and the photographs you saw, you'll find them below.
