Pigeon


For many years I mistook the Rameron Pigeon for the common Rock Pigeon because I was just going on pure size alone.
And to be honest most of us just see a Pigeon and don’t even pass it a second glance!

For the last while I have been slightly more observant to the various birds that I do get to see and what a difference it has made. Suddenly there is an entire new world out there waiting to be discovered.

With winter approchingĀ it is now the time to get out there and take photos of the changing seasons.

This morning I passed a lane of trees with some brilliant colours but due to running late I had not taken my camera and missed that perfect moment when the light and everything just seemed to come together. I totally forgot that in an emergency I could have wipped out my cell phone (mobile) and hopefully have at least got something to show.

Photographs on Sunday


On Sunday morning I grabbed my camera kit and headed out to the Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary.

It is only 15kms from where I live but I dont get to go there as often as I would like to. The weather was constantly changing between sunlight and overcast which played havoc with my settings. There were quite a few people in the hide by the time I arrived. One lady who was visiting from Holland told me that she was very involved in setting up the sanctuary way back in the early 70’s.

Will upload more pictures later in the day
