Waterfowl at Pensthorpe.

A lovely Father’s Day walk around Pensthorpe gave some great photo opportunities. Star of the show was definitely the baby Avocet complete with very protective mother.

The other Star of the Show was my wife, who treated me to a one year membership. Cracking present. Expect a lot more photos in the next 12 months.

I’ve not tried low key lighting in brilliant sunshine before. Poor Oscar was the (less than willing) model again. I’m quite pleased with the results. All need now is a two legged model to practise on.

Woburn Abbey

A great walk about at the Woburn Abbey deer park today.

Skokholm Island, Pembrokeshire.

So this is my home for the next few days. Well, when I say “my home” I actually mean I will be sharing it with 2 other photographers and one sound recordist. Despite it’s stark appearance on the outside the inside is decidedly cosy, mostly down to the wood burner in the communal area that is lit at 8pm every evening. Anyway, enough of this, over to the stars of the show, the Puffins.
