Wide Angle

The latest idea i had was to try wide angle on the visiting foxes in the garden , as i suspected just the shutter noise was enough to send her packing , only to reappear later that evening , but i did manage to capture one or two photo’s before she legged it.

Wide angle lens about 1.5 meters away .
the shutter noise spooked her .

Charlies in the Garden

For a few months now i’ve been putting out food for the fox’s resulting in a vixen coming in around the same time each evening and a male now and again.

The vixen now has cubs to feed and will grab food and disappear  for a while , returning later to scrounge any scraps left behind , click the link to my website to see all the photo’s.

New stuff at last

Hopefully i’ll get some more stuff on the website as i’ve not put anything on for a while The first couple of photos were taken in March in the Brecon Beacons around Penyfan , while the snow was still about and the Hare was only two weeks later .

The Week in Scotland

I’ve now had a chance to go through the images that i took  over the week in Scotland, some on closer inspection got the delete button as on closer inspection they were either uninteresting or basically out of focus ! the others that were left needed a bit of tidying up but on the whole i was quite pleased with them. the following are a selection of the week , – would i go back ? – Definitely,

Scotland landscapes

Finding wildlife and photographing it can sometimes take your eye off whats around you and the landscapes your in , always looking through the long lens and getting the same perspective , i took some time out while in Scotland to try my hand at some landscapes around Loch Garten , these are a few left of the many that ended up getting binned – be ruthless with your images i think !!
