This Week’s Featured Print – White Stork Attack

Facebooktwittermail

With my Morning With The White Storks Of Silves Field Trip coming up in just a few weeks I thought I’d get in the mood for these amazing birds.

This week’s featured print is a shot from February 2018 of a White Stork coming into to attack another already on a nest. It was trying to battle for the rights of this nest, it failed!

For me, it has become an icon of these amazing birds and really shows that they are not always the gentle giants they look. Take a look at the Blog Post from this encounter as it also has many other fighting photographs from this day.

This Week’s Featured Print: Dusk With A Great Story!

Facebooktwittermail

This week’s featured print is a shot of dusk at the amazing seaside village of Burgau. Whilst I was taking this shot, I could hear the group of people sat at the table near the slope to the beach commenting that they hoped that “The photograph won’t fall from the cliff”. I was in a safe place but it may have looked a bit dangerous from their position.

Fast forward a few days and I was displaying this image as part of my stand at the Aljezur International School Christmas Fair. The group had came to the fair and noticed the photo, when they read the information badge showing the date, they instantly realised that it was them in the photography. Of course, they purchased an A3 sized framed print as a memory!

The dusk colours were amazing that evening which made the photograph a great image of a great coastal gem.

As always, the Featured Image has a discount across all variations.

This Week’s Featured Print – Sunset Over Castelo De Silves

Facebooktwittermail

This shot was one of my most satisfying ones to date. Earlier in the day I had predicted a colourful sunset due to the high thin clouds but about an hour before sunset lots of much thicker high clouds rolled in. However, I trusted my instinct and headed to a favourite spot just outside the city of Silves that has an amazing view of the Castle and Cathedral and waited. The sunset was a little disappointing as the thick clouds remained, however, by the time the “2nd sunset” arrived (usually 10 to 20 minutes after sunset) the clouds had started to clear and the sky lit up in a collection of colours.

I underexposed the shot to create a magical silhouette of the Castle and Cathedral against this magnificent backdrop.

This Week’s Featured Print : Sunset Riders

Facebooktwittermail

This week’s featured print is only a few weeks old and I keep seeing it and keep admiring it. It came as complete luck, twice!

It is a small group of horse riders on top of the sand dunes at Salgados silhouetted by the orange glow of the sunset, the fact that a pair of Glossy Ibis flew into the frame was amazing.

Read the Sunset Riders – A Double Lucky Shot blog post for full details.

Of course, as usual for featured prints, there is a small discount applied for both framed and unframed prints. The contrast between black and orange looks amazing in print!

This Week’s Featured Image – Backlit Short-Eared Owl

Facebooktwittermail

This week a personal favourite of mine which also reminds me of some memorable early mornings and early evenings photographing a pair of over-wintering Short-Eared Owls near Derby, England back in 2016.

I was always in position before the sunrise and this particular morning a “Shortie” was out hunting when I arrived. The sun was just rising above the horizon and didn’t give enough light to capture this shot with detail so I used the darkness in my favor and under-exposed the shot resulting in just the sun light being exposed. This created a fantastic backlit on the wings giving a really powerful image.

As usual, the Featured Image is discounted and is available in both framed and unframed prints.

This Week’s Featured Print: Long Exposure Sunset

Facebooktwittermail

This week’s feature print started off as an experiment in March that resulted in an amazing image.

The Spring sunset was turning very colourful due to some high clouds. Although the wind level on the ground was low, the high clouds were moving at a fast rate. I decided to take a long exposure to blur the clouds. It turned into a spectacular image with some fantastic colours contrasted by the silhouette of the ridge line.

As with all Featured Prints, grab yourself a discounted purchase. This image is available in two sizes either unframed or framed with a choice of 4 colours!
