With all of the photographs that I take daily, I took the plunge and rented a professional class mirrorless camera and long lens (the type that sports and wildlife photographers use) for a week.
On this day, I returned to the waters under the Burlington Skyway knowing that there would be many birds.
At first, I thought that the weight of the set-up would be a problem but it really wasn’t.
Here are some of the photos:
The camera easily finds and tracks flying birds:
Imagine my horror on arriving at home to discover the my “Lightroom” photo processing system would not allow me to import my 400 photos.
After 2 hours of looking at every You Tube video on the subject, I finally realized that I needed to update the Lightroom programme which I did. Phew!!
Throughout the afternoon I watched them there,
Snow-fairies falling, falling from the sky,
Whirling fantastic in the misty air,
Contending fierce for space supremacy. – Claude McKay (1889–1948)
