Cullercoats Harbour 03 Feb 2014   It was a nice morning to take the camera out     John

A bit of a handfull !  

Time to resurrect this topic maybe.   A Wheatear, (migrating in for the summer) it was very close to where I parked for a walk yesterday and was still around when I got back, so I got the camera out

I don't mind at all, but I prefer my version.

 

I does make me wonder if there is a difference in how peoples monitors display colour.

 

Going to start another topic based on that (and this pic).

A couple more from this morning. Finding a bird which is perching in a suitable place to photograph is even more difficult than I'd imagined. Still no kingfisher.

......and digiscoping is at least twice as hard: welcome to my nightmare. :headhurt:

 

You seem to be doing OK Chris.

I've had a little dabble at nature photography in the past Ayjay, but I've just recently started to get quite taken with it. Nothing ever seems to go exactly to plan though. I watched a Great Tit wrench a great big gobful of moss from my garden a couple of mornings back, so spent most of half a day with the camera pointed to the same patch of grass waiting for it to return. After three or four hours, and just as I was about to give up, a sparrow landed instead and turned slightly away from me as it stood up with a beakful of moss. A nice-ish picture I guess, but just that bit short of being a cracker. Story of my photography life so far. None-the-less I love the trying. It's amazing how many parrallels you can draw with fishing too. I'm even currently involved in a heavy prebaiting campaign

We all had to start somewhere keegy - keep going it's good fun and it keeps you off the streets........

 

The bird pix are GREAT - keep 'em coming folks

 

I was in the right place at the right time today to see the pipeline coming ashore at Newbiggin. It will be used to pump sand ashore to replenish the beach which has slowly but surely disappeared over the past few years. A new breakwater will be built to keep it in place (They hope!) You can see Newbibbin Church on the point in the background, when the church was built it was about a mile inland!................
