Fisheye Starlings
This is not from this evening or even last night when there was some half decent light in the sky. This is from the end of December and taken from the "wrong" side of the pier. Having a bit of an experiment with the fisheye at the moment but could be promising...

Actually did go and see the starlings this evening. Sarah and I just watched them and to be honest, they were a little disappointing - headed straight for the roost with no major acrobatics; maybe they had had a hard day...

Still all was not lost. Sarah remembered that we were nearly out of gin so we picked some up on the way home. A very close shave - the bottle was nearly empty...

This photo Canon 7D, Sigma 10mm fisheye, f8, 1/15 ISO 100.

(Note to self: update web site BEFORE the gin and tonic, it is a lot quicker that way...)
