A very different subject to the landscape in the UK. My daily hiking trips allowed me to get to some great locations, albeit in the middle of the day. Harsh lighting was helped by a few Winter clouds on the road from Playa Paraiso. When I was editing the shot I noticed a small bird of prey (Kestrel?) is perched on the big cactus. 


The trouble with competing in an event is that you cant take photos at the same time. Earlier in the year there was a great, inspirational photo-journalism story that a Guardian photographer took of the UCI event in Ipswich. I did manage one or two images at my local league at the weekend and I’d like to do more. Maybe in the Summer at cross country…

Camera club fun

Our camera club moved location after lockdown and the new place has a field outside. We took a bit of a risk and held an outdoor “painting with light” session. This shot was taken with a mix of flash and a giant LED contraption waved around by a fellow photographer. The model has her eyes partially closed but I think that works ok.
