Camera is fixed.

Well after buying my new camera and trying to stick with the manual focus, I gave in.

The D70 is fixed and touch wood will last me a bit longer.

Typically though there was hardly anything about to give it a test run so Squirrels it was.

Here are a couple of shots from this afternoon.




Hope you like the pics and hopefully I will be posting more.

Cheers,  Mike.

Northern Lights

I have just got back from a trip to Lapland, mainly to see Santa, but we were lucky enough whilst there for the couple of days to see the Northern Lights.

It is something I have always wanted to see and photograph, we got a call from reception in the hotel to let us know that they could be seen, to be honest to start off with you couldn't see anything more than just a haze, but the camera was picking up a lot more than the eye.

We waited until around 9pm and head up the main sledge/ski slope to get away from the street lights.

I didn't really know what setting to have the camera on so I did a little reading on the internet before we head out, ideally its something you would practice, but as we where only there for 2 nights and it was cloudy on the first night I just had to wing it.

Here are the pics I got, sorry but there are quite a few.




















Hope you enjoyed my pics.

Mike.

Garden this morning.

Just a couple more pics from this morning, the Nuthatch is still avoiding the camera and hitting the feeders without perching first, but I will get him.

Just another Blue tit and Robin today,the coal tits are just too fast.


I'm hoping for something a bit different by next weekend, we will see.

Hope you liked the shots.

Mike.
