Photo Diary #1: Coto Donana, Spain, Part 1

Aloha Dolls ðŸŒº

Happy Easter Sunday everyone! I hope you've had a great weekend whatever you were doing! Today I've had a family breakfast and then I went to Colchester Zoo for a good old walk! It's definitely been a relaxing Easter Sunday for us!
Today I thought I would share with you some of the stunning shots I got whilst I was away in Spain. I went to Coto Donana National Park on the 11th March and it was such a great trip. I went with my university for a course trip and we spent most of our time admiring the beautiful wildlife and nature so I thought it would be a great idea to share with you the pictures I took - almost like a a photo diary! 

This was the visitor centre in the National Park. The public are not allowed to go into the National Park as it's only open to rangers and researchers so this visitor centre is a little gem. It provides lots of nature walks and bird watching spots for naturists to go and explore.

I took quite a few photos of the wildlife in Donana National Park but this one is by far my favourite photo of them all! I'm so proud of it and I also won best wildlife photograph of the week which was a pretty huge accomplishment for me!
This is one of the bird watching spots in the visitor centre. We spent a good few hours wandering the visitor centre and the area around it and watched so many pretty birds just living their life in their natural habitat. It was really uplifting and just beautiful. 
The coast at Donana was just gorgeous. The ecological landscape of the area is made up of land dunes so the hill sides are just stunning. 
Just a pretty flower and cheesy picture of me in the national park! 
Sitting on top of a Land Rover cruising around the national park searching for wildlife was definitely an experience that I definitely want to do again! It was so much fun actually taking park in an distance sampling activity instead of just reading about them in papers at uni.

I loved taking photos while I was in Spain and I can't wait to go to Egypt and Florida so I can take more stunning photos! I definitely think I'll be posting more of these 'photo diary' style posts as I just love sharing my photography! I'll be uploading another Spain Photo Diary soon as I still have so many photos I want to share with you all! I hope you enjoy these posts too.

Thanks for reading,

Aloha Tabitha ðŸ’ƒðŸ»

  3. Lovely photos! I also LOVE Colchester Zoo - I'm only 45 mins away and I've been literally dozens of times ever since I was a kid. It's a lovely zoo :)
