Clear View

It’s only at a rare occasion that the Riviersonderend Mountains are so clearly visible from our verandah in Napier (South Africa). Distance: approx. 50 km.

Aircraft

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….
