Thanks Ian

I am very very new to all this - so the Heron is a wonderful beginners model. He stayed so still I could extend the shutter speed and get some flow in the water too. If you could hire him out for photo shoots I'd say he would be fairly rich :)

Many thanks

Hello Dean,

This is certainly a great series starring the proud and self confident heron. On a number of different occassions I experienced the same thing as you've already noticed. Here I liked the diagonal perspective and the effect of water flow, you've excellently captured. Thanks and best wishes, Suleyman.

Thank you Suleyman

Yeah the Heron does make a great beginner subject

I am delighted you spotted these and many thanks for your very kind comments

Best wishes

Many thanks for your very kind comments

So many things I love about this scene! Brilliant shot! Y*. I like your title too. No good asking him what bait he uses!

Best wishes, Brian.

Hi Brian

Very warm welcome return - and its nice that someone still pays any interest to my older pages - thankyou.

I'm especially pleased you find this one out - its one of my favourites as its probably the first picture I would not have been able to take without a dslr - not without losing the motion from the water

Thanks, Dean. Yes, that's one of the things I like - the contrast of rushing and still water. Re. Herons, have you noticed there is an invisible line. They seem happy with your presence so you think, "I'll get a bit closer". So you move forward quietly and slowly - but as soon as you go just 1cm over that line he's off!

Best wishes, Brian.
