Nuts to Christmas

    Newer Older

    This afternoon I paid a visit to the Shell Wildlife photographer of the year exhibition in Bristol Museum and feeling suitably inspired I wondered across the road to Brandon Hill to have a stab at doing some of my own. I'd taken my Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 for shots in the museum (no photos allowed in the exhibition hall as it turned out) and my Canon 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 L IS for the squirrel shots. The low winter light levels forced a re-think as I just couldn't get enough shutter speed for the Canon. What to do? Obviously you place a pile of monkey nuts on the ground, lie down on the ground with the Sigma just a couple of inches from the nuts and wait for the squirrels to come along and grab the nuts.

    See where this picture was taken. [?]
