"...The most dangerous thing we have to look out for in the UK is stinging nettles..."

Yes and they can make your eyes water.

I once rounded a bend on a grassy track when my bicycle slipped from under me and I careered into a stinging nettle patch. Unfortunately I was wearing shorts.

Those nettles find their way, way up higher than you would think!!

Situational awareness is very important while out and about shooting so that you can work and return safely to your studio and share your moments.

It's not too cool to be so engrossed in the wonderful light on the edge of a cliff and then step a little bit too close or finding a neat detail, only to have serpent bite you.

However, of all the hazards out there, the worse tend to be the two-legged rats and snakes one tends to encounter when he is decked out with expensive photo trinkets!

Simply pay attention to your surroundings and if it feels sketchy...
