My Latest Work.

I love my photography and when you capture a beautiful Barn Owl in flight you print it off and admire the amazing detail and wonderful position the Owl creates from hovering above the ground. Beat after beat it moves its wings while listening for any sound coming from the undergrowth.

When it does this the wings are silent and its like someone he’s turned the volume down as you watch it dive and execute the kill, which it misses 9 times out of ten.

Thats what the TV programme stated the other night. But let me tell you that the one I film comes out makes 2 attempts and catches a vole.

So as I looked at the image I printed off I wanted to create a wood carving of it so 4 days ago I started and this is the finished article.

Silver Birch Barn Owl in Flight.

Written by

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.
