4K Video Of A Young Female Kingfisher (Video)

Facebooktwittermail

Yesterday morning whilst walking the dogs, I spotted a pair of Kingfishers already playing “Kiss Chase” up and down the river. This is a ritual that a mating pair carry out at the start of the breeding season. It’s not even March yet!

As a reminder,you can View All My Kingfishers From The 2019 Project.

Coincidentally, whilst going through some of my photo storage today, I stumbled across a short video I took during a session where I took these 2 shots.

New Field Trip Available – Day Trip To Castro Verde – 13th May 2020

Facebooktwittermail

I’ve been planning this trip for a while (since last year) and today I can finally announce a date and bookings are already available. Only 8 spaces are available so will probably sell out quite quickly.

Here is a date for your diary, Wednesday 13th May 2020. This is a guided trip to the amazing Castro Verde area in the Lower Alentejo with transport included.

Come and join me for a day where you’ll be picked up in either Albufeira, São Bartolomeu de Messines or São Marcos da Serra in a Air Conditioned 9-seater Minibus and driven into the Steppe terrain around Castro Verde. You will visit the fantastic LPN centre nearby where you will have a presentation followed by staff available for any questions. For those that are feeling the need to explore, we will take a gentle 3.5km walk around the site to view the many species of bird life present in this area. If we are lucky we will see the beautiful European Roller that breed at the centre.

After a lunch stop (not included) you’ll be driven around the local Castro Verde area on the hunt for some of the larger species of raptors that frequent the area, including various Vultures, Eagles and Harriers. Of course, we may even get to spot the Little and Great Bustards that the LPN have helped survive in the area.

More details and bookings can be made on the Photography Field Trip: A Day Trip To Castro Verde, Alentejo shop page.

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.

My Wild Portugal Digital Artwork Collection Now Available!

Facebooktwittermail

As mentioned a short while ago, I have been working on some Digital Artwork. I can now announce that I have selected 5 of my images and I have been transforming them into Digital Art to create a collection of a new and different approach to my work.

This collection is a limited edition production and each image will only be printed and sold with 100 copies (each print individually numbered). They are available individually or can be purchased as the entire Wild Portugal Digital Artwork Collection which gives all 5 images for the price of 4.

The square images are framed in a black 30x30cm glass fronted frame and a large white matt-board frames the 17x17cm image. I really feel this brings a different and unique perspective of the wildlife of Portugal. As always, these images are available to view in my Gallery Room by appointment.

Here are the images available in the collection, click the picture to view in the shop along with a view of them framed.

Sunset Session At Burgau

Facebooktwittermail

Another location ticked off! I was shooting a drone video for my Real Estate venture (FotoSul) on Friday in Burgau and decided to wait until sunset to capture another wish list shot. The weather was fantastic, almost too fantastic as I like a little cloud in my sunset shots but the colours were yet again amazing. I set myself up on the cliff overlooking the village and shot both sunset and dusk. If you like them, they are already available to purchase in the Web Shop

The village of Burgau is a little treasure, although on the South Coast, it is well away from the busy tourist resorts.
