A day at the Feeding Station

Long Tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus)

I spent today building up stock images of our more common bird species on mu feeders. The arrival of a flock of about 30 Long Tailed Tits was a real bonus and I managed some really nice images. Bird feeder photography is so interesting, you just never know what will turn up next. The image above was taken with the Nikon D3s and the Nikkor 600mm F4 Shooting in some gloomy conditions at 1,000iso at F4.0

A Change Of Pace

This week we spent a couple of days in the Yorkshire Dales looking at suitable locations for our landscape courses next year. It was great have a change of pace and swap the 600mm lens for the wide angles.

The area produced some really interesting and contrasting images ranging from dramatic B&W moody landscapes to beautiful soft evening panoramas.

We have two great venues for the courses next year, more details to follow very soon. In the meantime here are a few images from our visit to this amazing area and our take on the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Dales.

More Waxwings.

I had a few hours spare today, so decided to try and catch up with a few more of the Waxwings which are currently invading the UK. There has been a flock of 30+ birds at one location in the Ribble Valley for a few days now and they proved easy to track down.

The Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus) is one of those birds that you can't resist photographing no matter how many images you have on file, there will always be room for a few more.

Still not able to get the best lighting conditions today as I was pressed for time, but non the less I was pleased with the images from today.

For the photographers these were all taken on the Nikon D3s with the 600mm F4 VR Nikkor.
