When I re-blogged GMB Akash’s post yesterday it clearly struck a chord. One thing you can do if you are interested is to see if you would like to buy his book. I have done so today and paid by PayPal.
There is more about it here:
I have also exchanged some e mails with him to see if I can help in other ways. He makes me feel very humble. Life goes on however and I had a short excursion again today. I came back with one half-decent shot and another that might have been but wasn’t quite.
First, the shot I was happy with:
Taken in the shade but I have tried to remove the colour cast (the benefits of shooting in RAW). I have posted images of Black-kneed Featherlegs before but it is always a nice one to find and very easy too.
The second almost but not quite shot is this one:
The Forest Chaser has also appeared before. This image needs a bit more DoF.
I took both of these at my usual pool that others seem to ignore. The Tiger Hawker was there again today and I took a couple of frames but nothing special. Oh alright, I’ll post one of them.
This is spoiled for me by the background which is ugly and cluttered. However this side shot shows nicely the blue mark, which is usually hard to see. Oh and the tail-tip isn’t sharp either – couldn’t get the shutter speed. Even at 1/200s there was movement.
And that is it for the day. TTFN.
