A day at the Park

Heron in Flight

I promised that I would get out to Hartsholme Park and finally I managed it.

The weather was pretty good so I could get away with 1/800 second or above, stopped down one stop and still keep the ISO within reasonable limits.

The first set of photographs I thought were great, but then I rechecked  my settings and realised I had left the focus set to AF-S instead of AF-C.  I have the centre button on my camera set to do a deep zoom, one quick click and I can check focus.  Guess what?  That spectacle sequence of herons in flight were all blurred.

I quickly changed my focus settings but the herons did not bank past me in the same that day.  Oh well lesson learnt.
