I have been completely neglecting my blog recently, you know how it goes, you have so much stuff to do thinking about other things.
Well some good news to start off with. 6 of my images have been published in the Mersea Island Courier. The Editor Peter, gave me a task of spring. I enjoyed the assignment and am looking forward to the next one.
The next assignment is going to be Buildings/Architect of Mersea and surrounding villages.
Look out for my next publication!!

We went to Fingringhoe Wick on Tuesday. The sun was shining and it was warm out of the wind. As we came out of the visitor centre this lovely Pheasant was walking very close to the door. Managed to grab a couple of shots before he decided to get camera shy.

We were in London for a few days, and I thought I would do some street photography. Trafalgar Sq. seemed a good place, as it's full of tourists. Normally people photography is something I don't do, but I really enjoyed taking these shots. Hope you enjoy them.

Last week we went to London for a few nights. We thought that we wanted to be tourists in our own capital city, as we have been to many others around the world.
Want a brilliant time we had, although the weather was a bit rubbish, raining mostly. One of the things I wanted to try the most was some night photography. Here are a few of the shots that I have got. I hope you enjoy them.

Well this is the front page to my new website, not sure how much traffic it will get, but I thought "Hey, why not give it a go".
I used Photium.co.uk to host the website, and it was so easy to use their templates to create a professional looking site, without having to learn complicated HTML code.
Please take a look at my new website. http://www.mhdigital.co.uk

Really good to get out with the Camera today. Started a walk around 3ish, looked like it was going to rain. Had a little snow, but that soon stopped. Eventually the weather improved, and ended up seeing the sun and blue sky!!
Love all the colours on these boats and nets.
The combination of the Canon 5D MKII and the 24-105mm lens still amaze me, and I am soooooooo enjoying using them together.
Hopefully in the next few weeks, we will be going to London, watch this space.

Taken with the combination of the Canon 5DMKII and Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens. It make a beautiful combination too.
I was worried about paying for an L series lens, as they are expensive, but it only took a few minutes to realised that I had made a good choice. I will be using this lens as a walkabout lens, but more importantly I will try this for Landscape shots.
I will let you know how it works out.

There are talks about the Canon 5D MKII not being good to capture action, but so far I have found this to be the case. OK so a flying Curlew is not the fastest thing in the world, but you still have to track it through the air turning on your toes.
I'll let you be the judge of the shot.

Very happy with the performance of the 5D MKII focusing with the Sigma 150-500mm in OS2 mode.
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Exposure: 0.001 sec (1/800)
Focal Length: 500 mm

Well much to my surprise, I was given a Canon 5D Mark II for my birthday present this year. I truly was a complete surprise, and I am overjoyed.
As the weather has been crap, I haven't managed to get any shots with it yet, but as soon as I do I will post them up on here.
Come on, who doesn't like the cute little birds. At Fingringhoe Wick nature reserve, they have a feeding station outside the visitor centre, so they Blue Tit's and Great Tit's are used to people walking around. So it is possible to get very close to the birds.
This little bird was very interested in me, and was great that he looked straight at the camera.
This was a lucky shot. I saw this flock taking off from the shoreline. I quickly changed the OS mode on the Sigma 150-500mm lens to OS2 which is the setting for panning and moving, hit the AI Focus on the Canon and fired off about 5 shots.
Lucky? I'll let you be the judge. :-)

Yes the return of the Turnstone's. They seem very plentyful on Mersea Island and this one was very obliging with having it's photograph taken.
It was actually running past me, but was a little to fast for me to react to.
I saw someone's dog running around Cudmore Grove today, I thought I would grab a couple of shots.
I little crop in Photoshop and a little boost to the colour is all the processing I did on this one. Pretty happy with the results.
