This week’s theme in our weekly photo challenge
We’ve had 16 weeks of some truly stunning outdoor photography, so for this week, with May Day just around the corner, we thought we’d ask for your Outdoor Outtakes. Mishaps, oops moments, when things hilariously don’t go quite the way you had hoped – share your photos using the #ScrapbookOutdoors hashtag!

Don’t listen to TLC, get out there and chase these Waterfalls
Waterfalls in films are often depicted as romantic, exotic locations (or the inevitable end to somebody being carried down a fast flowing river), and we have some stunning waterfalls around the UK that you can visit, and some of them couldn’t be easier to reach. The best thing about waterfalls, is that they’re actually more impressive in the rain – so don’t let the great British summer hold you back.
In this article we look at some of our favourite waterfalls around the UK and offer up a walk you can tackle to find them.

Woodland day trips for the whole family
The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep. If you go down to the wood today, you’re likely to find stories to tell, stunning trees, and winding paths to explore and enjoy. The British forests and woodland are a real thing of beauty, and they’re just waiting for your family adventures. So if you’re looking for a family day out this year, why not check out some of these?
