The Scapers is a group of photographers who are interested in Walks, Landscapes and Wildlife. We combine these passions to enjoy and improve our photographic skills.
We have visited places such as Virginia Water, Bushy Park, Richmond Park, Piddington, Fingest, Turville, in the Chilterns, Bramdean in Hampshire (Bluebells), Boxford etc.
Our aim is to visit places that have beautiful landscapes and lots of wildlife.
Some of the images from the walks
Personally I have completed over 500 walks in the last few years and I have to say, I never realised just how beautiful this country is until I started walking around here. There are just so many little beautiful villages and landscapes.
Here are just a few of hundreds of images that I have taken:
As with the landscape photos, I have thousands of images of wildlife taken on walks:
If like me, you love wildlife then you can do a lot worse than come on walks with us.
All our walks are mapped
This is a map from a free App that I use to create routes and record all our walks. The highlighted areas are simply Berkshire and surrounding counties and I as have mentioned earlier, I have completed over 500 walks in these areas in recent years.
Here is an example of a recorded walk and as you can see, any photos taken during the walk will be synchronised and shown at the exact location.
Did you recognise this photo? It is Chequers.
And lunch as well…
I can assure you, we are not alcoholics!
We simply love old traditional pubs and all our walks start and finish at a top rated pub, many of which are historic, such as The 12th Century Bell Inn at Aldworth (near Goring) or the 13th century,The Royal Standard of England at Beaconsfield.
There are many others like this and so far I have visited 144 different pubs during my walks and I have many others on my list for the future.
Would you say no to any of these delicious meals? A great reward after a nice walk plus of course a nice drink with the meal!
When and where do we walk?
We walk usually on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays.
I know that many of you can’t make midweek but if everyone agrees we can arrange weekend walks for special events. Members could then even bring their families along.
We aim to have our walks within a one hour drive of Bracknell but we do make exceptions for special places. Our walks can be both either hilly or flat and the members of the group decide.
