A Day Out

What a great day yesterday was. A full day with the camera, in a hide, photographing wildlife. I went to a farm just outside York to photograph kestrels, hare and owls. No owls and only 2 hare but the kestrels were fabulous.

Here’s a few images from the day.

Another day there is called for, perhaps when the chicks hatch and the parents are coming down for food.

Last Photo Competitions of the Season

The Competition Season for my Club, The f4 Photographic Group, has now finished for 2020/2021 and we re-commence in March for the new 2021/2022 season. I had some success during the whole year but finished off the season with a win in Round 9 of the PDI (Projected Digital Images) competition “Table Top & Macro Photography” with this image – “Bee in Flight”

We’re changing our Competition categories this year in order to widen the scope from just subjects defined by the external competitions we enter so hopefully some additional interest will be created.


I was hoping to get out this week before the weather broke but circumstances foiled me again! I had a problem on the PC that also carried across to the laptop so was busy sitting  trying to resolve matters with the invaluable help of Ron from Malwarebytes. The programme itself is brilliant, but the best thing is the patience and skill of the support team if you ever need any help.

Thoroughly recommended – now where’s the camera gone – oops, too late, its pouring down……
