Land & Nature / SHARE YOUR PICTURE FROM THE LAND – #OFTHELAND

From The Land

Young Mee Rim is a student in Natural History Conservation at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. She is a comber of beaches, mountains and woods – her aim to discover small treasures from the land – whether they are unusual fossils or beautiful feathers. TOAST first discovered her on instagram. You can read more about Young’s favourite pieces here.

Over the next two to three weeks, TOAST are inviting our instagram and twitter followers to photograph their own findings from the land. Each week Young Mee Rim will pick the most interesting discoveries for the Toast Travels blog and instagram feed, sharing her insight on each of your finds below. We will also send a £50 TOAST gift card to those of you who are selected, as a thank you for your time.

To share your picture simply use the hashtag #OfTheLand and tag our name @TOASTtravels on instagram or twitter from Tuesday 11 August – Friday 28 August.

A fossil, a feather, a flower… we await your find.

Follow TOAST on instagram here. Follow TOAST on twitter here.
