Over the past two days i’ve spent some time on the rivers near to where i live. Its about the time Dippers start to build their nests and last year i started photographing them , with limited success.
The main problem being the low light levels in the steep sided river valleys. So with the promise of at least some sunshine over the weekend i decided to give it another go. A pair had started nest building and were popping in and out with nest material, Giving me a good chance of achieving an interesting shot. but despite the sun coming out from behind the clouds i still needed Iso 4000 to get a quick enough shutter speed .
These flight shots although not the best have given me a few ideas and i think the next sunny day may give some better results.
You always need a plan !!
