YAWN!!!

    A couple of weekends back saw PG and I down South for the last of her 33rd Birthday presents from me, which was a day's photography and tuition shooting big cats at the Wildlife Heritage Foundation, near Smarden in Kent.

    Safe to say she absolutely loved it, and you can see the stunning results on her stream here.

    While she was doing all that, I tootled round the south coast hoping for inspiration to strike, and finally shoot something with the new arsenal worth talking about, taking in Hastings and Battle, and coming away from both locations thinking "Meh!".

    So, I arrived back at the WHF at 5 o'clock to pick Den up, feeling a bit disappointed, and like I should have had more to show for my efforts than a half empty petroltank and traces of my lunch on my t-shirt. Only when I got there, all the photographers were still on their free-time section of the days shoot (where they could go back and get some more shots in the bag of their favourites), and after 10 minutes of oohing and ahhing at the various felines as Den was getting her final shots, I finally thought, "Sod it, I'm going to have a bash as well."

    So I did ;)

    I only tried for the Lions in the end (evening was fast approaching), but I'm damn glad I had a go while I was there :)

      Wooooow! This shot is so beautiful! Lions are amazing creatures! And the inside of their mouths are just as amazing as their outside, if not even more.
