Windy afternoon at the lakes

Rob and I were at the lakes this afternoon but due to the high wind, the amount of subject matter was very limited and did not settle long enough to grab some decent images.

I started off using the 105mm f2.8 macro then switched to the 300mm f4 PF for the remainder of the images at Lower Mill farm.

It was just good to get out  and get fresh air and exercise.

Sheila took me out this afternoon to stop me festering at home.

We went for a drive to Bibury and had a walk around the village so I was able to get some exercise and grab a few photos of Arlington Row with the superb Nikon DF + 50mm lens, the church and other areas before visiting the William Morris Tea Rooms (now owned and run by people we know).

We had a lovely cup of coffee each and a brie and grape toastie each - yummy and a pleasant snack and conversation.

It was a really enjoyable trip out and good time spent with my wife - thanks She.

Nature by the lakes

I spent a good few hours today with my good friend Rob who took me out to the Waterpark so that we could capture some nature shots.

I had the D500 with me and even though I had the 105mm f2.8 Macro in my bag, I spent all the time shooting with the 300mm f4 PF lens and have to say I am amazed at the versatility of this lens and it's close focus capability is incredible.

These are the images from today.
