I was looking at what I’ve done at Martineau so far and wondering / reviewing my experience of the gardens
I have photographed a lot of natural landscapes over the past few years and continue to do so, particularly at Norfolk. Photographing at Martineau Gardens it is very different from my experience of being in the landscape. Everything is considered, even the wildlife area. While photographing I am very aware of the care and attention given to the space in terms of planting and presenting a range of areas for people (and wildlife) to enjoy.
I realise that most of the countryside is managed and there are very few rugged and truly wild areas left. I think it is the concentration here, and the scale of the different areas that makes the difference. The transition between managed and wild is very small indeed.
Nature at Martineau Gardens is very well nurtured
