Internationally renowned travel, wildlife and adventure photographer John Beatty has spanned the globe’s wildest places.

In recent years, however, he has been increasingly enjoying the wild places of the UK, from the white sands of the machair in north-western Scotland to the windswept granite tors of Cornwall.

Now John has turned his talent to pulling together some spectacular photography with the 2023 editions of the Wild Nature Diary and Wild Nature Calendar, published and edited by John in partnership with the John Muir Trust to help promote its work in wild land conversation.

The desk diary and calendar are packed with stunning images drawn from photographers who love being out regularly in the natural world. Each image tells its own inspiring story capturing the wild beauty of nature for all to see.

Wild Nature Diary, presented in a clear, week-to-view design with informative captions, showcases the work of Britain’s top nature and landscape photographers  in a superb collection that truly represents the atmosphere and moods of wild places. This wiro-bound desk diary is the best of its kind and will remind and inspire all those with an interest in the natural world. Edited by John Beatty and with a Foreword by Mark Cocker, the 2023 edition features a wealth of informative captions and location maps. Each image tells its own story and is the perfect companion throughout our busy lives. The week-to-week format offers ample space to write for each day of the year.

The Wild Nature Calendar features 12 spectacular large images also showcasing some of the best landscape and nature photography in Britain. The wall calendar hangs vertically in a clear, page-by-month design with maximum space to write each day.

John told Essential Journeys: ‘This year I have introduced some exciting new photographers works – the brilliance of these images makes my work as editor one of enormous enjoyment in the making of this year’s editions which are packed with land and seascapes, wildlife, plants, and textures of nature.
