Snow Day pt. 1

Dedicated to Rory :P
Well we all know it snowed, and we got time of work and school. I decided to wander the college estate and found a flock of Linnets (Carduelis cannabina) feeding on some of the unfrozen ground. Here are a couple of the pictures.

Well after another session in the hide and some more editing, I have got some more pictures of Goldfinches (Carduelis carduelis), sadly they are still not all up too the standard I would like so I’m going to start baiting the teasels again.

Another Day at Barcombe Mills

Recently I spent another day at Barcombe Mills, I feel I am beginning to over photograph the main subject, the Mute Swans (Cygnus olor), however this time there were some Barnacle Geese present which provided a welcome change of subject.

The Goldfinch Project Part 1

I have wanted to photograph Goldfinches (Carduelis carduelis) for a long time, I felt it was time to try and nail some of the projects that I have planned, so I set up the obligatory teasel and nyger  seed, below are a selection of the results from the first few sessions in the garden hide.

Distractions, Editing and Snow.

I’m sure like many other photographers this last week of snow has be very welcome, sadly it also totally ruined my workflow process and I now have a ridiculous number of pictures to delete or edit. 
I’m slowly progressing through my backlog of pictures and found some taken just before Christmas at Cuckmere Haven. Enjoy.

First and hopefully not the last!

Hello and welcome to the first post on my blog. It has been a long time since I created this blog to profile my photographic work and experiences but I have only just made the first post.

I think this has mostly been due to me going through a fallow period of my photographic progression, however I'm coming back and will hopefully remain motivated though admittedly it can be difficult with the weather and conflicting of commitments.

Recently I have been editing the backlog of pictures on my PC, below are a couple of taster images as I feel it would be unfair to start a photographic blog without any photos.

Hope you enjoy the blog and that it continues.
