#ScrapbookOutdoors Week 44: Outdoor Men

This week’s theme in our weekly photo challenge 

You may remember earlier this year we celebrated International Women’s Day with our ‘outdoor women‘ theme, and it was great to see so many photos submitted. Now it’s the turn of International Mens Day, so in a similar theme – we wanted to see your best ‘Outdoor Men’ photos and selfies, here were some of our favourites.

International Men’s day serves to raise awareness of mens health, the high suicide rates in  men, challenges faced by male parents, among other things.

So this week we asked you to head outdoors, get together with friends, take yourself for a walk or a ride and breathe in some fresh air and enjoy the health benefits of nature.
