E3 goes sub zero

For the last two mornings i have been out 'in the field' on the North Norfolk coast around Cley in temperatures at 6.30 am which were -5. I had with me my battery grip with a couple of fully charged Oly compatible batteries from 7 day shop (5.99 each) I have taken about 250 images and used the various features on the camera over the two days in 8 hours of cold weather. There is still charge in the batteries and i am happy with the performance. Here are some images from the two days. The bird is the famous white crowned sparrow that has been on the news recently.

Nice shots there, I particularly like the first image. I did similar yesterday (up before 6.30am) and drove over to a little village called Croft, just north of Warrington.

Here's one of mine...

Thanks for your comments. I think by getting to a location at first light you have the best chance of capturing a scene. That why when i arrived there, there was a photographer who was already set up, and he had a large plate camera, i think it was Harry Cory Wright. Here is a link to his web site. When you see one of his prints on the wall it is like looking at a view on the world from a window. Clever lighting helps but big is beautiful in this case. His gallery is worth a visit whilst in Norfolk.
