There’s a number of shrubs in my garden which attract bees and hover-flies like you wouldn’t believe. Anyway, I got the macro lens out yesterday and decided to have a go. Hovers are easier than bees – there’s so much pollen on the flowers they just won’t settle for long enough. So, I was quite pleased to get these
Another Summer outing with f4 Photographic Group, this time at Bempton Cliffs. Not many puffins to be seen in close but a lot of gannet action. Here’s a couple of shots from the evening.
An evening last week with the f4 Photographic Group across the river at Chowder Ness. There were a lot of nasty flying things that just wanted to bite me so I didn’t get a lot of images. I had bought a product called Smidge which came well recommended, but the instructions about not getting it in certain parts of the body put me off so I was uncovered. Fortunately, my daughter has got me some Avon skin so soft which is also recommended so I’ll be wearing that tomorrow.
There was a nice little family group of swans which I thought looked good in semi soft focus mode – hope you like them :-
Just spent three great days on the Isle of Mull with the f4 photographic group. We were taking pictures of eagles, puffins and anything else that came our way. I stayed at the Strongarbh House in Tobermory, run by Adrian and Jane who were suberb hosts and the house is thoroughly recommended.
We took two trips out on the Lady Jayne, skippered by Martin, who showed us some beautiful sights, knew where all the best places were and we came back with a bag full of good images. Mind you, my camera was playing up a bit so I binned more than I saved. Can’t wait for the next time.
