A few from this weekend

Well finally escaped from the house for the day.  Took in The Lizard, Kyance Cove, Hells Mouth and Ryan's Field. Didn't get many images but great to be out and about again. Put in a fair bit of walking looking for new subject/better photo opportunities but no joy today. Had some fun trying to photograph Fulmars in flight with the 600mm F4, be so much easier with a 300mm f2.8,(anyone wish to donate one to me) still managed to get a couple of decent shots as they swooped in and out from the cliff face. Due to the Landslide last year near Hells Mouth one of my favourite photographic spots has been closed off by the Health and Safety Police, pity thought I was adult enough to make my own mind up what is safe and what risk I am willing to take. Ok here are some pictures from my travels on Sunday.

Hey Bob! An excellent set of pictures, camera lens notwithstanding. Particularly like the "Fulmar in flight". Thanks for sharing.

Good set of images Bob, I like the cormorants as I've been unable to find any nests near enough to photograph.
I had a lot of spam recently so I've just enabled the word verification on my blog!
