CCC Workshop

Emma and Sophie were  wonderful models at a workshop yesterday, along with Zoe and Francoise and David (all also excellent). Eventually they will appear in all kinds of scenarios as the aim of the day was to create composite images but here a few images  for the girls from the camera. There will be many more from the participants on the day.

People in Cambridge

I often photograph people when using the infrared camera as the result is totally unpredictable. for instance the ladies on the bridge and the one in the avenue all had black coats but synthetic materials are rendered pale by the IR. Glad to see that Trinity College supplies natural fibre suits and hats to their porters.

High-Contrast Cambridge

Here are a few photos from an hour or so out with my IR converted Canon camera in Cambridge on a very clear sunny afternoon.

Wet Weather Wings

It rained heavily Saturday night so I wasn't expecting any dragonflies on Sunday but one had already emerged and another was just breaking out. (This may be the end of this batch as none on Monday)

Rain Stopped Play at Lakenheath RSPB

The first part of the day was fine and very good for insects as virtually no wind so lots of damselflies (variable and azure shown here), Hairy Dragonfly, Crane flies and Emphid flies. The Hobbies were busy catching the insects but unfortunately too high and the sky too grey by the time I dragged myself away from the insects and spiders. The rain arrived around 1 pm as these wet Goldfinches show.

Thirty Dragonflies Emerged and Counting

Over the last few days, there has been a steady emergence of  Four-spotted and Broad-bodied chasers from our pond plus Large Red Damselflies. They are using all possible vertical surfaces including the inside of Marsh Marigold leaves. Not easy to photograph the emergence as lighting often harsh and the greens so vibrant early in the morning.
