As I mentioned in my last blog, I recently headed off to central Europe to photograph Sea Eagles, Buzzards and Corvids. 6 days away, 4 days in the hides and hopefully, plenty of opportunities to photograph the target species. Our group met at Luton Airport and we set off on the journey to our destination – Gostynin, in the heart of Poland. Firstly via Wizz air to Warsaw, and then by car to our accommodation. I have to say that I had my reservations about Wizz, but I was pleasantly surprised – cheap, on time, no hand luggage weight restriction and reserved seats at the front if you...Read More
The bad weather continues and my daily 6am dog walks have become a bit of a slog through the mud and surface water. For me, that’s the worst of it – I can’t imagine what it must be like for the poor souls who have had their homes flooded, and those whose house’s remain underwater. Something is changing though – ever so slowly. There is more activity and more bird song each morning, and the glimmer of dawn is on the horizon slightly earlier each day – this can only mean that we are fast approaching my favourite time of the year and I fully intend to make the...Read More
Firstly, Happy New year everyone. So what’s new ? Well, not a lot really – I’ve managed to use one of my camera’s once this year so far, which beats the activity for November and December at least ! This Green Woody was the subject matter and very confiding he/she was too – while I slowly opened the conservatory door and aimed my 500mm lens at it ! As I watched the GW, another one appeared and so, for a while, I had 2 on the lawn – each happily feeding on whatever it is they were finding to eat. After all this rain, the earth under the grass is completely...Read More
Well, another year draws to a close which just leaves me to say, Merry Christmas to everyone who takes the trouble to stop by and to read my ramblings. Best wishes for 2014, and for whatever it brings your way. GrahamRead More
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
