  1. I aimed for an early start, but pill taking, Zimmer frame location, getting lost in the satnav all took their toll and It was about 10am when I left. Different views of the river Severn. Shooting directly into the sun and playing with silhouettes
  2. Wow!! I just love it. Well worth the effort of getting out of a warm pit first thing in the morning.
  3. Now this I like. It's surprising what can be achieved when you think outside the box. A lovely composition and mono conversion.
  4. Thank you Clicker. I know the feeling about missing different photographs, I do it all the time.
  5. I haven't seen these before either Clicker, although the RSPB list the bird as common and on the green list. Cracking shots to boot.
  6. Thank you both, but this bird was moving so fast it really was a case of focusing and a high speed burst. I'm not one to turn my nose up at it, but luck really played a part.
  7. A nice subject for monochrome, Gareth.
  8. I spotted some movement in the budding climbing hydrangea, but was damned if I could make anything out with the naked eye. Then, looking through the 600mm lens, what I thought was a leaf turned out to be a Greenfinch. I managed two grab shots, one about to flit and the other half way through a flit. Believe me, more luck than judgement
  9. Some adjustments from clicker.
  10. As a bird photographer, I have to say this set is exceptional. The detail is stunning.
  11. ............Sort of. This lockdown is providing a lot of ideas for idle hands. A means of advertising the site while we are out and about....................a sort of business card, provided as a PDF that can be downloaded, with a page that has multiple business cards, based on the image below, that can be printed out at each members leisure and handed out to those that show an interest. Thoughts?
  12. That photo had to be taken either early morning or late evening, because the sand would be too hot to sit on during the day.
  13. We lived in Egypt for a couple of years when I was a child and all my early formative years was all about half days at school, (it was far too hot during the day), siestas and swimming in the Bitter Lakes in the late afternoon and evening. I had no idea about green fields, snow and constant rain - you should have seen the horror when I met my first stinging nettle.
  14. If I remember correctly, although it was hot it was a dry heat, unlike the muggy heat of the tropics - now that is sapping.
