Still experimenting

Getting out and about more
As better weather seems to have finally arrived I have been getting out and about a bit more. Unfortunately I tend to be a fair weather photographer and to be honest not too good at getting up early in the morning. The effect of this is that I end up taking images when the sun is fairly high in the sky which is a bit of a killer for landscape work. I have entered a few competition Amateur Photographer, Take a View and sent some prints off to the Solway salon to see what happens - I would add with no real anticipation of success. Recently spent a really good day at Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire - its about 2 hours drive and a wonderful tranquil spot well know for its dragonflies and other wildlife. A couple of the dragonfly images are on Flickr together with a gull in flight all taken at Wicken. The only downside is encountering the A14 rush hour on the way back
