I have been looking back through some image files stored on a back up hard drive. So this weeks image was taken in London a few years back. His name is Ralph a Miniature Schnauzer and belongs to my daughter. A little dog with great character who loves attention and to play but would never make a guard dog. He would be putting you out in front to defend him.
My image this week is part of a Hawthorn tree. It was growing near the top of a hill and the rising sun was back lighting the young leaves. It makes a good colour image but my thoughts were the tones it would show in B&W. I’ll leave you to judge the image for yourself.
Nikon D7200 with a Sigma C 150-600 mm lens.
Shot at f5 using the 150mm setting on the lens and ISO 800.
Spotted this cat climbing a tree with its eye zoned in on a small bird sitting on the top branch. I went upstairs for the camera, looked out the window and it was at the top. Small birds nearby where flying out of dangers way. The following sequence of photos where taken from this point. I’ll leave the cat to tell the rest…
You’ll not be so lucky the next time.
Op’s where’s the stairs down!
Ok remain calm, you can sort it…
Right let’s see, how the hell did I get up here?
Well here goes, easy does it, sorry for the butt shot.
If I catch you, you’ll not be laughing..
Right let’s try this way.
Nope, got to go down and across.
Shit this is slippy..
another stretch and I’ll be safe. I think..
Cross here, easy …
Right you bundle for feathers here I come.
