Views 234 Unique 100 Award Shortlist   


By gary_d
I have not been on site lately but will catch up over the next couple of days I promise.

This was taken at the barn owl centre in Gloucester on Friday in the company of Lillian, Richard ( Dickspics ) Mal ( Techno ) Chris ( Chris wallace ) and a few others.

A very enjoyable day expertly run by Vince Jones and his staff who's knowledge of the birds made for a great experience.

A big thank you to Chris Wallace for your help in better understanding the EOS 5D3 AF system, while it is enormously powerful it is so difficult to understand and your advice helped a lot and I am very grateful.

Regards. - Gary
