Out early Sunday morning and went up to my local woods, Drumkerragh Forest. A misty view of the forest and Slieve Croob mountain greeted me. Has I set off with camera bag and monopod on my walk, I hoped the sun would burn off the mist. After three hours of walking and into my final mile the sun started to do its job.
This was taken with a Sigma 150-600 mm lens, shot at 240mm. I love the way a telephoto lens can give the appearance of compressed distance between distant objects in a scene.
This area has a large number of ravens around the woods at this time of the year. Walking towards some dead trees just of the trail. Two landed close by on one of the trees.
Missed the first one in but caught the second one landing has seen above.
This next shot is a silhouette shot edited in Silver efex pro, I use this to edit all my B&W images.
Again it contains a lone Raven sitting calling across the valley.
The start of the walk did not look promising from a photography point but I ended the morning with a few good shots to edit in the evening.
Thank you for visiting and stay safe.
