Happy New Year

Happy New year everyone. It's while since I have posted to this blog but a new year brings new opportunities, as well as a huge backlog of photos to process and share with you.

In the spirit of keeping things up to date, I will start with a few photos from New Year's Day itself - a trip to the coast and a pleasant walk along the cliff tops at Hunstanton with an attempt to return back along the beach. The hide tide meant that we had to retrace our steps, but it did give me opportunity to grab a few shots of the Fulmar soaring overhead.

This was by no means a photographic walk, so these were really just grab shots (and there were a lot more that I missed than I grabbed). The light was lovely, and I would have loved to have had more time. The birds seemed easiest to photograph as they turned back at the edge of the cliffs, hanging there for a moment, before moving off quickly again.

The Fulmar photos were taken with my trusty Canon EOS 7d Mark II and 100-400mm lens, a combination I can easily carry around with me on a waist belt. But the scenery along the foot of the cliffs was bathed in glorious light as well. There was no time to change lenses - but these days I can always grab a quick image or two on my phone - the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 takes a half decent image in its own right!!

It was a lovely walk and great to take a few pictures. Hopefully this will be the start of a great photographic year ahead.
