How’s it going?
Well yesterday we got back home after spending 9 fantastic days down on the coast in Sunny Devon.
Had a great time and feel completely refreshed and raring to go
Of course whilst away I’d been out and about busy with my camera and I’ll be working on some new pictures now I’m back. In fact a couple of the new pictures that I shared last week I’m considering adding into a Bonus Chapter in my new book as they’re not normally the kind of images I shoot and retouch and I think there’s a lot that could be learned from it.
Anyway today whilst we get settled back in I thought I’d share a video with you from our day at the Hawkridge Bird of Prey Centre where we had 1-1 learning about the birds and then learning how to handle and fly them free around the outdoor arena and then on a 2 hour Hawk Walk.
It was an incredible experience being so up close and personal with the birds; it made taking photographs a dream.
Check out the video and from 1:34 onwards where you’ll see Anne and myself
HUGE thanks to Rich, Sharon, Adrian and everyone else at the Hawkridge Bird of Prey Centre for such an incredible day; we’ll definitely be seeing you again.
For more information about Hawkridge check out their web and Facebook details below:
Oh and if you’ve ever wanted to learn more about Birds of Prey, their care, handling and so on I’d highly recommend Hawkridge; their enthusiasm and passion for what they do was infectious and seeing people such as them all doing something like this for all the right reasons is a pleasure to see and an honour to experience!
Right that’s all from me for today…I’ve a new Peregrine Falcon picture to work on, so have a good one and I’ll catch you back here next time.
