Young conservationist, blogger and photojournalist Tolga Aktas took the Canon PowerShot ZOOM out for a spin around the River Severn in his home area of Gloucestershire, UK. Originally from south London and now studying for a Master of Science degree in Applied Ecology at the University of Gloucestershire, Tolga, 28, has done research projects with conservation groups including Wildlife ACT and The Mammal Society. He shares his passion for nature with the world through writing and photography via his blog, Ways of the Natural World. "The natural world has inspired me in more ways than I can tell you," he says. "We are inextricably linked to nature, and this is something we forget sometimes."
