While photographing birds around the coast I noticed birds washing in the incoming tide. So here are some images taken around the County Down coast.
All photograph’s taken with a Nikon D7200 plus a Sigma 150 – 600 lens with a Sigma 1.4 converter and edited in Lightroom.
Time to dry out.
Next up is a Hooded Crow or a Grey Backs has they are locally known.
Next two photographs of a Common Crow.
He looked like he was enjoying that..
Next the gull that thought he could stop the waves.
First a warm up.
Command the wave to stop.
More practice required.
Hope you all enjoyed bath time.
Thank you all for stopping, feel free to comment you likes or dislikes.
This week’s photo was taken last summer on a beach on the County Down coast. It is a Grey Wagtail sitting on a litchen covered rock.
Enjoy your day and thank you for visiting.
With the sun shining and a light breeze I shouldered the camera bag, grabbed a tripod. Car locked and my first chat was with a man and his dog. Some local information is always welcome. I sit here listening to the wind and heavy rain beat it’s tune on the window. I took the following photos last weekend, what a difference this weekend.
First up are a few photograph’s of the Pied wagtail, these were taken while out for a walk along the coast.
I always hope to get some shots of seals that bask along the shore, but so far no luck. With the tide in I knew they would be out from shore. This one was around 100 metres from shore.
I got a few head shots but loved the light catching his whisker’s in this one. We have two type of seal’s around our coast. The grey seal and the common seal with this being the Common seal.
My last one is off the small lighthouses that mark the entrance to Strangford lough on the east coast of Northern Ireland. I gave it an old time look when editing it in Silver Efex Pro. Let me know what you think.
Thank you for visiting.
Still cold here with a wind that would cut through you. But it was dry and the sun was out. So took a half hour drive over to the coast on the County Down. With the tide and wind sculpting the sand around the rocks I got these before a rain shower blew in.
After this was shot the rain started and I watched the first day of the year get overtaken by the dark.
Thank you for visiting,
