It was a dull and showery day at Lackford on Easter Sunday. Pix here were taken at ISO 1000, the top two on 400mm and the bottom two with added 1.4x converter. Blurry gull at 1/60th second, grumpy swan chasing away goose from his pond. All pix in colour!!

The head-on shots were at 1/640th on a monopod, and the cars tended to outrun the focus ...

This almost neglected cemetery is still in use, and also functions as a nature reserve. There is a ruined chapel in the middle; most of the graves are Victorian, and include the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth, and his wife Catherine. Meredith came with us and jumped in every puddle she could find, met a sleepy lion and saw lots of dogs.
