So in my last post I mentioned the beautiful hour I spent waiting for him in a cafe gorging on carrot cake.
For Christmas I brought him a super duper DSLR camera and along side it brought him an experience at a wildlife sancturay where he would get the chance to photograph birds of prey (another passion of his).
The results were hundreds of lovely photos.
I hope you don't mind but I wanted to share a few of my favourites. I hope you like them too.
Before we set off he had a mini rehersal with our own chickens. I just love the rich colours of this photos. Its so warm and clear.
You'll have to forgive me but I am not sure of the names of the birds but this photo caught my eye as the owl just sinks into the tree. It's so camaflauge and with a little bit of cropping I think this would be a lovely print.
A close up of the own above. This time with a bit of gree moss and ivy to help him stand out a bit.
Although not a bird of prey, craig likes all birds! I love this shot. Somehow it makes me feel full of freedom. I love the empty sky the little bird is just about to adventure into.
Another Owl. This time a gremlin looking Owl. Grey body, bright yellow eyes and a lush green backdrop. Wait until you see the next one .......
Wow - what a close up. I don't know whether its cute, or scary ..... still it's such a good photo!
Another lovely close up, this time with some brilliant shadows and light bits. I really love this one. I think the little bits of straw give the picture some depth as well.
I hope you liked them too. It's not bad I think for a starter. I was so proud of him!
