Fujifilm XT30

Out on my travels this afternoon, and down to the village of Wennington on my scooter.

The River Wennington was running fast after heavy rain.

Trying out the new camera using Manual mode, my knowledge tells me to slow the water down.

I needed a very slow shutter speed, so I had a couple of attempts using a small area of water near to the bridge and placed my camera as low down as it would go with the LCD screen horizontal to the ground so I could see the scene.

Off to the railway station to capture the image from the road.

Making my way back to our site, I went the back way past some lovely old buildings covered in ivy.

I tried an image of a wooden shutter with old rusty hinges on. After cropping the image, the detail was very good.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
