Welcome to my PF, I have been interested in photography from the mid 70's commencing with a Zenit film SLR complete with screw-in lens. I now have a reasonable DSLR Nikon collection of cameras and lens.
I am attracted to the challenge of portrait photography, studio lighting and shadow which has taken me out of my comfort zone and into a completely new world of photography.
I have a passion for natural history and the very demanding and often lucky shots of the moment which I find so rewarding.

Many thanks for taking time to view and hopefully comment on my attempts at capturing that special moment.
All comments and critique are most welcome and respected.
Kindest Regards, always, Burnsie

  • Feather light

    We have just returned from South Africa where we had a pair of Knysna Turaco in the bush where we were staying.
    The call song is like a grunting pig which is really weird for a bird as good looking as this.

    Kindest regards

  • That is a very nice Mirror Carp mate, Respect!
  • Top man John, thank you for your sound advice.
    I am in the corperate area of the Saracens suport, as my company have supported the Sara's for many years, and therefore restricted with where I take my shots, however I fully understand your reasoning.
    Today at Twickenham England must have more attacking options than against SA, however I think first and foremost England will need sound defence work, or the score could be a record breaker.
    Kindest Regards
  • Jon, I owe you an apology, The Gold Crest is noted as the smallest bird in Europe, I always thought as the wren being this, however.

  • Penny, Thanks for the welcome note.
    I really like your take on underwater shots of the marine world.
    The Powder Blue's are great. Seeing Schools of them like this must have been fantastic.
    Well done and thanks again.
