Wicken Fen - RPS Outing

As so often, the weather let us down a bit at Wicken, especially for the bird photographers. Although, in the morning the skies were interesting for landscape work, there was not enough light generally to do the landscape justice. I used the full armoury of graduated filters, stacked panoramas (image 4) and HDR (5) to try and get a feel of the vastness of the reeds and skies at Wicken. The image I liked best was the simplest - reflections of two reeds in the water. In the afternoon, we settled into the Broadwalk Hide to wait for the Hen Harriers and were rewarded with 3 hunting Barn Owls, a murmuration of Starlings, 2 Marsh Harriers and several Hen Harriers but by then it was too dark for my camera.
