Since 2008, I have been a member of UK Nature Photographers forum, but as my membership is due for renewal, I have decided to not to renew. It’s a huge shame because at one point, UKNPN was the place to see inspirational nature photography. Day after day images would be posted by some of the best togs in the business and I learnt masses from just seeing what others were doing. Sadly, all good things come to an end and when an annual fee was introduced, that killed off most of the membership. A few remained however and for a while, the forum picked up – the core stalwarts posted...Read More
The weather has really turned hasn’t it – rain, rain and more rain. In fact, as I type this waiting for the England v. Argentina match today, it’s pouring down outside. For the rut this year that left few opportunities for those fresh, cold frosty mornings and iconic shots of stags bellowing in orange morning light. My pal Calum and I decided to pay Richmond park a visit on the only free weekend we both had, and so off we set at 4.30am a couple of weeks ago to see what was happening. The rain started almost immediately and carried on until we were both soaked through a few...Read More
Well, summer has certainly hung around this year hasn’t it ? Last Sunday I sat in my garden wondering how long I had before my face started to burn – not bad for a Sunday in October. A week later though and Autumn seems to have set in. This extension of the summer, whilst very welcome, had another effect however and that concerned the Jolly Boys trip to Norfolk for 2013. We had to bring the trip forward because of the holiday commitments of one of the gang and so we ended up travelling to Norfolk over the last weekend of September instead of when I usually aim to head up there...Read More
My first attempt at a timelapse video – I thought the clouds were amazing so I decided to take the shots. This clip is made up of 672 jpegs, each 1 shot every 10 seconds on my DX using my 24 – 105 F4L with a .6 ND grad then processed in LR4 and GoPro software.Read More
Earlier in the year I blogged a couple of times about the long term project I’ve been working on - the farm badgers. Ever since I discovered the set a couple of years ago, I have invested significant amounts of time, effort and money, and I’m now finally managing to get some of the sorts of images I envisaged when I started the project. When I visit the sett it takes me quite a few minutes to decide where I want to place my camera and to set it up carefully checking my composition and looking for obstacles that might get in the way. I then need to carefully locate my flash...Read More
Last year was a super year for Little Owls at the farm. We had a breeding pair that produced two chicks – one of which became especially confiding. I will never forget the first time I tempted the young Lowl down to some tasty mealworms and then watching it grow up over the next few weeks. As it got more and more used to us, it was easy to get complacent about having this young Lowl around, available to photograph whenever Bob or I wanted. Not sunny this morning – I won’t bother. Looks like nice light this evening – let’s go see...Read More
