So, no more entertaining children. and back to the remarkable sights that the sunsets this winter.
I'm always looking for photo opps, but at this time of year a photographer who likes going close upon wildflowers and insects, and dreams of one day being a good bird photographer despite the struggles with his camera.
Bird photography has never worked out for me. My bridge camera - not a very expensive one - is very sensitive to my shaky hands and the results have always been disappointing. I intend to practice in the garden this winter, with birds on feeders, and see how I do.
I'm also looking at how I can get walking and running again with these plantar-fascitised trotters of mine. Because I'm getting a bit fed up.

Fantastic skies Si.ReplyDelete
You take great photos. I had a bridge camera and it didnt work for me. I now have Lumix with Leica lens. Point and shoot. I too have shaky hands but this works for me.ReplyDelete
Don't worry about your running. Once I had to stop for 12 months because of feet problems. That was 20 years ago. I simply took it easy and let nature take her course. Don't get stressed about it. Find other things in the meantime. I enjoyed painting, listening to music, and walking or more correctly ambling along like a lost man. Time passes. Nature heals. You'll be alright.ReplyDelete
I always enjoy your photos. Have you considered setting up a tripod near the feeders and putting the camera on that? I love Gwil's running and resting advice, there's a lot of sense in it. I have heard that plantar can respond well to physio too.ReplyDelete
I love your photography.ReplyDelete
