Little Visitor

I walked into the kitchen to see this little visitor sitting outside the window.  Thankfully he was still there by the time I’d grabbed my camera and switched to my 300mm lens.

Feathers and Fur Photography Session

24th May 2015, a few members of Wingrave Photographic Interest Club (WinPIC) took a trip to Feathers & Fur, Reading, to practice capturing images of stunning birds of prey.  The sessions are organised specifically for photographers with a range of birds and opportunities.  Flying certainly tested all of our panning and focusing knowledge.  It was an amazing experience and we’ll be going back.  More images to come in future posts.

Butterflies and Buddleia

Resting in the garden brings photo opportunties too.  Taken with my 90-300mm lens.  (Have to be honest, I had to spell check buddleia ;-P)

WinPIC Equine Shoot and Charlie Came Too

These images are from Wingrave Photographic Interest Club’s (WinPIC) July location shoot, with thanks to the star of the evening, Nessie and her owner Viv, with a supporting role by Charlie!  We had a fantastic location, the first real warm summer evening, and I used the opportunity to sharpen my monochrome photography skills, with sepia filter added in Photoshop.  Next month we’ll have exclusive access to Buckinghamshire Railway Centre with a collection of steam engines and artifacts – can’t wait!

All The King’s Horses

A display of models of the various King’s horses at the Tower of London, with the relevent King named on the banners above.   I have to say Henry VIII’s was a particularly large, and wide one!

Busy Bee’s!

An experiment to see how close I could get to capture clear shots of honey bee’s hard at work with my standard 18-55mm lens.

Come along now!

While on a weekend canal boat trip, we came across this lovely family of swans.  I’ve never seen so many goslings with their parents.
