Focus on Imaging 2013

The Focus On Imaging 2013 show is currently underway at the NEC in Birmingham (3-6th March). I went along to check out some of the latest gear and maybe pick up a bargain. As someone who uses Nikon cameras this was the first stand I headed towards. I only really wanted to see if the…

The elusive waxwings

Several winters ago there was an influx of waxwings from scandinavia, greater numbers than usual. At that particular time I did not attempt to track them down to photograph them, something I now regret. So this winter when they arrived in significant numbers I made the decision I would attempt to get some images of…

Return to Snettisham

Sunday 16/12/12 saw a return visit to Snettisham in Norfolk. I have written about this location in a previous post. I arrived quite early at the car park which was busy as I had expected. It was still dark when I reached the farthest hide on the reserve which is a short walk from the…

Snettisham birds

I had not been back to Snettisham for about 15 months until last weekend when I decided to pay a visit for a couple of days. It was a place I visited many times in recent years. Snettisham is a bird reserve run by the RSPB here in the UK. It is situated on the coast…

Anyone living here in the UK is well aware of the…

Getting your kit from A to B – Gura Gear Kiboko

Having been interested in photography for thirty or so years, my kit has grown and evolved from film to digital however the same old problem of how to transport all this equipment around still prevails. I have built up quite a collection of gadget bags, backpacks and lens cases over the years I have yet…

Kingfishers & Barn owls

Here in the UK a couple of months back it looked as if the winter was over and spring had arrived early. Living here we should all know by now that this was too good to be true, and so it turned out to be the case. Since then all we seem to get is rain, rain…
