Prestwood Nature Photo Archive

In 2017 Prestwood Nature started using the on-line photo sharing service Flickr.   This has enabled us to store permanently photographic records of our activities and to share with others the many collections of photographs that we have built up over the years.   

A photographic collection is only useful if people can easily find things in it so we are setting up different albums to cover our various topics and events.   

There are two ways in which you can view the photos.    If you click on the small picture alongside each description,  a window will appear showing a simple slide show of the contents of the album.   You can either sit and watch the slide show or user the navigation buttons at the top of the pictures to move forwards and backwards through the collection.    If you wish to see more detail about any of the pictures or want to download it yourself,  there is “Flickr” button within each entry which will take you directly to the album on the Flickr web site.
