Photographing in local towns and cities is something I tend not to do on a regular basis. Sometimes though, a particular scene catches your eye and you think, giving the right situations, the possibility for a special image is there. Most major cities will have their own local colony of Lesser Black backed Gulls. This is the same for Worcester. Passing the River that runs parallel to Worcester on several occasions I noticed that at certain times of day some of these gulls would have their daily preening session. I’d also noticed the reflections of the buildings on the opposite side of the river. I planned the photography to be done during the best weather conditions to make the most of the situation. The image below is one of my favourites from the session. Its definitely a place I will be going again as there are plenty of possibilities to be had here.

Todays image, number 047 is from the La Brenne area of France. It’s really difficult to convey the amount of poppies that were in this field. It was amazing to see and I spent around an hour shooting it from different angles trying to make the most of this beautiful landscape, before moving onto the next location.

Image 041 is a ‘regular’ sunset from Kota Kinabalu. Due to Mt Kinabalu dominating the weather systems in Borneo, there is always a lot of cloud about during sun set. This makes for great images every night of the week. Heres another one of my favourites.
Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia, April, 2010.
