Over the weekend we made a trip over to Brownsea Island in Poole, Dorset for a walk and adventure. It’s been so many years since I visited the National Trust site situated in Poole Harbour, it was really good to spend some time on the Island for a relaxing walk, checking out the sites, the amazing views of the Purbeck Hills and Dorset coastline. I decided to produce a creative photographic documentary capturing the elements of the scenery and wildlife. There are a few ferry options, we caught the ferry to Brownsea Island from Sandbanks.
When photographing as a documentary photographer, I’m always on the lookout for interesting things and to creatively capture them. Brownsea Island had plenty to offer, famous for it’s Scouting history it is also home to the Red Squirrel, as well as many other wildlife including peafowl (peacocks) that rome free. During the walk we sat down for a snack and a very friendly Pheasant came to investigate what we were eating. We also stumbled across a large ant’s nest. My attempt at photographing an ant running up a tree took some dexterity to keep up with him.
It was a fun day out, here’s my documentary photography photo story from the Brownsea Island adventure..
