Coast In A Storm

Went out today weather really bad so i took my Sony and the Tamron 28-75 with me and my crystal ball, had some fun but could only stay 40 mins as my ball was getting splashed and was visible on the edited images. Still it was a bit of fun, then editing in Luminar 4.

I achieved the silky water just from settings with no ND filter, i had problems with over exposure but rectified it in post editing My settings were Shutter 1/3 ISO 50 and f22.

Yesterday i went for a walk and took these 2 images using the crystal ball.

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.
