Its been a long time posting on this blog but work has had to take precedence unfortunately. I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and had many great parties for the New Year celebrations!
To kick start the year off I had a trip up to Scotland to photograph some of the Scottish species. First of all is the Red Squirrel. A very iconic species and great fun to photograph even though they are a bit quick. This image was taken at ISO8000 (yes, you read right, 8000!!) as the light was extremely poor. There was no snow so had to improvise…so….this is what rain drops look like at 1/2500th sec shutter speed. It looks like snow. I think another trip to here is needed to get the real wintry conditions.
