Praying for Good Light

I have long looked for a Camera that makes me happy, longing for nice weather to let the Beautiful piece of technology do its work with the skilled hand sharp eye and electric reflexes. No movements to quick my eye focusing just as quick as the r7 sensor.

No light today again camera waits with batteries charged, SD cards formatted, jacket pants and boots all sit waiting. Glass emaculatly clean ready for the moment.

My hunger for images of birds flying is overwhelming, I pray for a nice day, but clouds stretch for miles, just a bit of Blue sky is like heaven and brings a smile, but then its gone.

One day maybe tomorrow who knows.

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.
