#SolaceInNature is a personal project that began just before the first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the midst of growing concern and deep uncertainties, I found my thoughts turning to the calm and beauty that I find in the small details of nature. In the hope that it might help others too, I decided to share those small moments of beauty and connection with others via social media. And so my daily hunts for small treasures close to home began... often using a magnifying glass to find and photograph the beauty.

I was deeply moved by the responses, particularly from those working very long hours or self-isolating and unable to get outside.
