A studio shot of an orchid – another example of nature crying out to be photographed.
So this morning I did as I was told.
Nikon D800 + 70mm macro lens, SB800 Speedlight bounced off a white umbrella.
Taken at the Sovereign Park SkatePark in Eastbourne this afternoon. This guy was brilliant!!
What a place to practice your fast-action photography.
On my D800 with a 24-120mm lens @ 42mm, ISO800, f/5.6 at 1/8000 sec.
Discovered this morning in Epping Forest, the last remains of a fairy ring.
A pleasure to photograph; but more difficult to stand up again after lying flat in the leaves to get the shot!
D800 + 70mm macro lens, ISO 400, f/11 @ 1/23 sec.
… to walk past and not take the photograph!!
D800 + 85mm lens, ISO 400, f/9 @ 1/800 sec … and some lovely afternoon sunshine.
Taken at Walton-on-the-Naze, this was one of about six ‘gaggles’ of geese that all moved across the nature reserve at some secret signal.
I was lucky enough to catch these ones in tight formation.
Nikon D800 + 300mm lens @ 240mm, ISO 400, f/7.1 @ 1/1000 sec.
This morning, on the River Stort.
A grey autumn afternoon, and rowing boats on the lake at Hatfield Forest.
This little chap ( yes, look closely – he’s definitely a chap ) is becoming a regular in our garden.
He seems to like the bird’s nuts more than they do!!!
Just to prove you don’t have to travel far to catch a good image, this was taken in my garden early on Saturday.
The blazing colours of autumn.
Sometimes just the graphic shape of a blade of grass is all it takes to find beauty in this world.
This was pulled from a field edge on a local walk and then photographed against a black cloth in my table-top studio.
So simple, yet so amazing!
