I've just moved to London and have been neglecting my photography as there isn't any obvious scenery in central London that isn't buildings.

I was wondering if any Londoners here could recommend any country parks in driving distance of central London that are worth checking out for scenery/wildlife? I already spend my entire week in the city, I don't wnat to spend my hobby there as well -_-

Any ideas?

Well I suggest Richmond park. The best park for photography in london no doubt. so much going on in there.

I think you may need to define what you mean by "driving distance of central London". Would that get you outside the M25?

I've never been to Richmond Park, but by the look of the photos Alex has taken there ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/430/120/277621.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/430/120/277621.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' it would be a good spot to go to.

Further afield, i.e. outside the road to hell, you could try Windsor, or for the sea-side, Southend.

Holy damn, I think I'm headed South of the river...

I was in Richmond the other day actually, some nice areas. I guess I'll check that out.

I'd prefer inside the M25, I'm looking for places that are maybe up to a half hours drive away.

Not sure exactly whereabouts in London you are but when my better half and I lived in London (about 3 years ago) one of our favourite places to go on a weekend was Greenwich Park. If you wander up to the observatory the views across to Canary Wharf and back across the City are excellent. Greenwich is one of my favourite places, you can walk for ages and not see a soul or if you'd rather be in the hustle and bustle there are always people at the observatory. As well as the views, the park has the feeling of being right in the heart of London but without all the noise! There are also some great markets and lovely places to stop for a beer before you head up to the park...and on your way back ;o)

I'd also echo earlier thoughts on Richmond Park, if wildlife is your 'thing' you will love it there! :o)
