Cheltenham stalls and graffiti

We were in Cheltenham today and while Sheila finished off her shopping I grabbed some photos of the market stalls and then found some areas where there was graffiti on walls and underpass areas as well as some other parts of Cheltenham that I do not normally visit.

These are the photos from today.

Local meanderings

Out again locally with the DF as I wanted to see how the 24-120 performed on the camera, it is not a lens I would normally use on the DF but as I intend to use it on this camera on Boxing Day to photograph the local hunt, and work alongside my other camera I wanted to try it out.

Apart from the balance change due to the weight of the lens, I cannot fault the performance and used it to grab a few scenes around town and in the parish church.















Yesterday I put the 85mm back on the DF and took a long walk through the countryside.

In the countryside

I was out for my daily exercise this afternoon and took the D500 with the superb 300mm f4 PF lens with me, the aim was to grab some snow images and see what else was about.

I was heading along the river bank when I saw the Kingfisher flying around, I did manage to capture a couple of images of this incredible bird.  The first one was shot just as the bird took off to grab some food from the water and the second shot was the bird sat on the branch watching the river for food.

As the afternoon went on the temperature dropped but I was still able to capture some images I am happy with.
