Cliff Watch


Cliff Watch, originally uploaded by julian sawyer.

Not the finest picture of a Peregrine, but it is the best I have got so far. Not an easy shot for me, the cliffs at Durlston face south, which means that for most of the day the Sun is in the wrong place. On a cloudy day, the slate grey bird disappears against a slate grey sea so that is no help at all. This morning though, I had at least 10 seconds to get it right, so no excuses.

I would love to see a Peregrine, lucky shot:-)

Familiar Places

There was a calm along the cliffs this morning, helped by a soft light and a haze that sat just a few miles out to sea. Just a few days...
