National Media Museum

Last weekend the club visited the Museum in Bradford, where I came over all arty with my camera.  Most unusual for me!

The rain arrived as forecast at Snetterton on Saturday, making for much more interesting images than in the dry races earlier.  The late afternoon sun came out for five minutes (Pic 2) and I experimented with slow shutter speeds and spray.  The No. 12 car was driven by Pietro Fittipaldi, 17-year old grandson of Emerson Fittipaldi, who was twice F1 world champion.

New Venue for CCC?

The Camera Club tried out Cambridge Rugby Club for size on Monday.  Soft seats and plenty of room to move about in the interval were popular features.  Fuji on a tripod with slow shutter speed.

I'd just got into the Reedbed Hide at Fowlmere when this sparrowhawk had a go at something over the reeds.  It was unsuccessful and rose up into the wind.  The images were over-exposed.

Birding Firsts

Yesterday Ann and I went to Wicken hoping to see the Hen Harriers at dusk.  ISO cranked up to the stops, lens fully open, focussing failing, four seconds for the grey birds to glide out of the gloom and into the reeds.  Then today we were at Fowlmere watching a Water Rail preening at the edge of the reeds, when it flew!  I was so surprised I did nothing for two seconds, then I threw the camera at the bird.  This was the only frame with the Rail in it, below the focussing points.  But I've never seen a Water Rail in flight before.
