Sunday morning with the weather being somewhat overcast, I decided not to go out shooting wildlife but have a lazy morning in. A late brunch consisting of home made Corn Fritters, Bacon, Honey and Fresh Coffee was the order of morning. Then as I blogged yesterday, we had a fight with the bike in trying the so called simple task of changing a head light bulb on the GS motorcycle.
In the afternoon I grabbed one of my small cameras, a Leica M8 and we went for walk round the village.
When we got to the village church we had a wander round the church yard. We both love church yards, there is something quite lovely and atmospheric about them, we don’t find them scary at all.
As we walked into the church yard, a young woman with a DSLR round her neck came out, obviously having been photographing round the church and grave yard as we were about to do.
We took a number of atmospheric shots, and I even had a go at some bird photography with the Leica and the 35mm Summicron lens. I had to slowly approach him but finally managed to get close enough with my moderate wide angle lens to get this shot of the black bird sat on top of the grave stone.
A pleasing selection of images I hope you agree.
