Concert at the Eden project, Cornwall

By cyclingrelf
There were several blackbirds singing around the site at the Eden project when I visited last spring. This one had placed himself neatly in front of one of the biomes and was really going for it. Wonderful!

good capture.
Well spotted - lovely image.
I'm a novice so I don't know if this is a stupid question or not it possible to take photos successfully within the biomes or is it too humid or whatever for the lens/camera?

Hi Ukulele_Lady,
It's not a stupid question at all! It is very warm and humid in the tropical biome, so when you first go in, your camera steams up. You can't use it at all, because the water is likely to cause it damage if you turn it on. This is because the camera is colder than the air, but after about 10 minutes, the camera will be the same temperature as the air and you'll find the lens demists. It's then safe to turn it on and snap away as much as you like. I took several photos - I've uploaded a lot of them on Flickr. I use that site to share my general photos with friends and family, then just put my very best shots on here so that I have a portfolio. (That's the plan, anyway!)

I'm a novice too, btw, just in case you had any misconceptions! Wink
Thanks for that, I still haven't been although I live in the SW so I feel a trip to Cornwall coming on now!

Oh - I heartily recommend it!! It's not only interesting in it's own right, but all the staff are really excited about what they're doing as well. There's a great sense of optimism. Definitely go if you can!! There are LOADS of photo opportunities as well. I spent an entire day there and could happily have stayed longer. I was fortunate in having a good friend with me, who was happy to go around slowly photographing things and reading the information notices.
