Black & White Wednesday

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.

Ralph.

Thank you all for visiting,

stay safe and well,

George.

Black & White Wednesday

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.

Covir-1-129

Nikon D7200 with a Sigma C 150-600 mm lens.

Shot at f5 using the  150mm setting on the lens  and ISO 800.

Feedback always welcome.

Stay safe.

A cats adventure.

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…
