We reflect on two methods that explore personal experience of natural places within a human-centred framework for design. The methods attend to the meanings people make of their experiences in natural places and emotional and intellectual sense of being in a place. We use Egocentric Point-of-View video to explore transformations of immediate sensory transactions in natural places and Nature Probes to elicit affective qualities of experiences. We apply McCarthy and Wright’s dialogical approach (2005) to uncover relationships between place and self and discuss insights emerging from our methods with respect to belonging to a community through its natural landscape.
