  • Stonechats in Autumn Sunshine

    I spent quite a long time following a couple of Stonechats as they flitted about in the sunshine last week. It was hard work keeping up with them but it was worth it for the lovely light. The nice thing about Stonechats is that they usually perch on the highest point of the undergrowth, which makes them easy to find again when they fly off.

      Yes sorry Mark, I got a bit carried away. I could always string them together and make a short feature film.

          Lovely light Ron. I particularly like the rim lit shots (2 and 3) - just because I like that style of lighting...

          I was lucky to be shooting last week in similar light. It makes getting cold so much more bearable.

          I'm glad you are still getting so much fun with the photography ...and the equipment.

            A lovely set, Ron, obviously helped by your knowledge of the subject.

                  Lovely. All excellent with the second one standing out.

                  May I ask how much you have cropped?

                        Hi Tord. Since you asked here is the info for the image sizes. I will let you work out how much they are cropped. It is quite a bit.

                        They all started out as 5184 x 3888 raw files. Before resizing for the web the cropped images are as follows:
                        1: 1844 x 1383. 2: 1416 x 1888. 3: 1338 x 1759. 4: 2197 x 1712. 5: 1504 x 1935. 6: 2143 x 1608. 7: 1448 x 1699. 8: 2294 x 1721.
