It was a busy weekend. First off, an early start and I got to Hartsholme Park shortly after dawn. We had a very slight snow fall overnight, and the morning was looking good. I had high hopes for some good images.
I shot a few leaves and trees, the colour was a little limited, I had wanted some good reds but they were a bit lacking.
After shooting a few landscape shots, I headed to the lake and setup with the tripod to shoot some of the wildlife. Just as I was setting up a Heron flew past, typically I was not ready. It was the closest I had seen a Heron for over a year, it would have made a fantastic shot.
I then saw a Cormorant fly past, this time I thought I was ready, unfortunately I was still thinking about landscapes and had left the camera in aperture priority set to f/8, thus as you can see in the picture above the picture is a little blurred due to the shutter speed being too low.
The morning was fun if very cold, and it was a reminder to me how difficult wildlife photography is. I had not done any for several month, and I missed many good shots.
A good morning, which I enjoyed, but I was a little disappointed with the final results. Still next time I will do better, as they say practice makes perfect.
