It seems that for the past three years I’ve always taken the wrong decision on when to have my Summer holidays. This year I had the better part of June off from work and, as always, I started to take the best photographs when I had to go back to work again. Same is true for the weather. The minute I had to go back to work it started to clear up and get nice and sunny… oh well, enough about that. Time to see what I’ve been up to for the past few months (yes, it has been that long since my previous post, sorry ’bout that :p).
I don’t really have any special stuff to share other than that I’ve been preparing for a very interesting, yet quite difficult and challenging, project that will probably take me around 2 years or so to complete. I’m not going to specify exactly what it is since I don’t even know yet if I can get it to work like it has been working in my mind. I’ve had to make some serious investments in both time and money but if it’s going to work, oh boy, will you be amazed!
Here is my Summer of ’13 (so far..):
(all are clickable and will link to my website)
Great fun that was! Came running straight towards me, then stopped within the minimum focussing distance of my lens and decided to turn around when it noticed something weird was lying on the path (I wasn’t even wearing any camo clothes).
Yes! 2 King fishers :). Taken at F14 or so to try and get both of them sharp.
ISO 4000 :p
Actually found a small weed plantation near where I took this shot :p (I’m not kidding!)
Not a very common garden guest. Shot full frame at 4fps of a D800 :). Wall sized prints anyone?
A real wild fox! Not one of those fake, tame ones ;). It actually took me five early mornings to get this one. Luckily I got the fox before the local army of hunters did..
An evening light King Fisher. They never seem to bore me. Such characters they have!
Until next time!
