This week I'm posting images on behalf of the #realhappinessproject from @bbcearth an initiative based on the premise that we are at our happiest when we're connected to nature. I love climbing because it gives me this kind of happiness. A happiness that is just about being where you, paying attention to where you are and not trying to change things around you. And for me this kind of happiness is easily found outdoors in natural places.

Climbing and most sports are excuses for adults to play like children. Why did we stop playing? #realhappinessproject @bbcearth

If you could play his antennae like the fine strings on a guitar, I think this is what it would sound like.

Song: "Fail Safe" by @ketsamusic

The sky looks heavy as I looked down Glencoe but in reality it's pretty modest weather. The west of the country bears the brunt of the notorious British, particularly on mountain regions where warm moisture laden air that has travelled over the ocean is pushed up to altitudes where the lower temperature condenses the humidity into rainfall. This is called 'orographic rainfall' - there you go, for a Monday morning that's not too bad a piece of learning. #everydaysaschoolday

Give me a reason why you're not out traveling and I'll give you ten for why compasses are a horrible reason to figure out where you're going. Get out there y'all. .

Imagine these were the only sounds on earth: no planes, trains or automobiles, no humans, no man-made noise at all. Listen to this, it's like what the earth was like when dinosaurs were on it. #PlanetEarth #bbcearth #realhappinessproject

To the untrained eye these birds may not look like much. They're not bright coloured like the puffins I've posted lately and I guess many may dismiss them as drab or just sandwich stealing seagulls! But actually the fulmar is one of the most graceful birds in flight, they know where all the updrafts and thermals can lift them, rarely flapping they maintain a rigid wing to take ample advantage of this. This post is for the unsung heroes of avian grace :) #fulmar #scotland #fairisle #grace #graceinflight #graceful #bbcearth #earthcapture #birdstagram #birdsofinstagram #seabirds #flight #visitscotland #realhappinessproject #rspb #rspb_loves_nature

A captain and his boat! Anchored up in one of the finest west coast locations. A beautifully sheltered bay guarded by seals and the 900m cuillen hills where I saw a lone golden eagle soaring high. There were plenty of large mussels to pick for our dinner to which we added juniper and bog myrtle from the shore for a local flavour :)

A bit of surprise night nav with @rheapappas when we were forced to leave a sheltered anchorage on Harris before we even got into our bunks! The depth sounder suddenly leapt from 30ft to 8.6 as we drifted on the anchor over a shallow point in the harbour bed. Scary stuff but passed without incident :)

Summer is on full right now and I'm still missing this 😭The small village of Jakobsbakken in Arctic norway buried in deep drifts of snow! A sunny day with no wind and there could hardly be a more chilled out place to be :)

Blissed out paddle out! First evening out with the @aquatech_imagingsolutions housing and I couldn't be more stoked with the potential this has opened up for me! Jake paddling out through dark water, purple with the evening sunset!
