It looks if we had some kind of a whirlwind above our heads this morning.
Fine Art Photography, Napier, South Africa.
Some call it art but for me it’s just garden decoration. For years now it’s a trend to add objects in the garden. It can be anything; from an old plough to the rusty pickup truck left behind by a previous owner. The owner of this garden kept it to a few home made steel crane birds, bird feeders and a wheelbarrow.
As promised in an earlier posting: some sunset pictures shot at the Stanford River Lodge (Stanford, South Africa) and from a canoe in the adjacent Klein Rivier (= Little River). The camera settings adjusted to sunset/dawn. No photoshopping except for some cropping, grayscale and the copyright lines.
It’s not easy to make pictures of birds if your equipment is limited to a maximum of 300mm. An 800mm lens is the least one should have to shoot wildlife including birdlife. But these lenses are from a budgetary point of view out of reach for many of us; especially if you want good quality. So simple souls like me have to stick to a bit of luck and cropping in photo-processing software.
Anyway, this week I gave it a try, in-between shooting a spectacular sunrise. Tomorrow (next posting) “More Aircraft”; part of it grounded….
