Marriotts Way – My Wildlife Photography

Today (Saturday) I decided to try a new (for me) cycle track called Marriott’s Way. It starts in Norwich near Halfords and leads to Aylsham. It is a 26 mile cycle route! The way is for walkers, cyclist and horse riders.

Today, during my trip I saw many interesting landscapes and wild animals like birds, rabbits and also horses, rams and donkeys.

I finished my journey in Whitwell / Reepham which is about 15 miles from the point where Marriott’s Way starts.

I took some photos, the best ones I decided to publish in this post. I used 3 different lenses: Nikkor 55-300mm, Tamron 90mm Macro, Samyang 8mm Fisheye. Please look below and enjoy 🙂
