Short macro session

A stunning day in Cornwall so I thought I would give the macro photography a go. Missed my early start and the good light. By the time I got my self out the light was really intense, I visited Hells Mouth and Marazion beach.  Carrying the macro kit around at Hells Mouth I spotted two peregrines so back to the van for the big lens. By the time I got back up the hill a huge sea for had completely covered the area, so another visit to see if the Peregrines are still around later this week!  Anyhow some of the macro shots below

Final Day in Outer Hebrides and a Visit to Aviemore Ospreys

Well my time in the Outer Hebrides has come to an end, and it has been an enjoyable trip. I will re-visit next year, only difference being I will spend longer time there! A visit to Aviemore Ospreys unfortunately only came up with one bird on the day I was there but I did manage a shot or two! The bird flew in before anyone had set their camera's up. I managed these shots panning the camera with a shutter speed of only 1/200 sec. So not a bad result at 4:55am, lol.

Now the blog is up to date the website will need doing, all the house/DIY chores and by then it will likely be time for Helstonbury so a three day photographic weekend there!
