This shot of an Eagle Owl in flight was one of the first images to gain me a nomination in the Masters Cup (Color Awards)
This image is 4 years old now but I still love it.
I have made many prints of this and it was also featured in an article in the Yorkshire Dales Magazine.
The image was taken in North Yorkshire with a Sigma 300-800mm lens mounted on a Gimble head
made by Induro Model Number (GHB 2)
mounted on a solid tripod made by the same manufacturer and all three items have served well.
I intend to post more images from my wildlife collection as soon as I get round to re-editing them for the new website Theme which I hope is working well at the moment
The lens is my Sigma 300-800mm lens is the best lens I have used for wildlife photography, even though it is a 5.6 aperture wide open it still feels responsive and the focusing is very quick.
Hope to share more images soon and build up more posts with images worth taking a look at..

Anybody who found this page probably knows already the hype and all the relevant specifications that make up the Nikon D800 and also the more expensive D800E.
By now you would think the launch of this 36Mp camera and all of the associated discussions would be over and people who wanted to buy this camera would have one in hand, not so it seems.
The cameras release sparked quite a debate amongst the photographic forums, firstly came the price hike then came the discussions about AF problems and last but not least the availability of said camera.
I have been looking at this camera as an addition to my small camera collection so have read with interest the many reviews and conversations about the Nikon D800 and the Nikon D800E.
My decision was that I shall wait awhile yet before spending the £2,599.00 required to own this 36Mp camera, although I can say that I found it quite easy to find both the D800 and the E variant of the shelf had I decided to buy one.
I wonder how many people outside the circle of must have the newest camera released brigade actually bought one and found it to be the best camera they have up to date purchased and used in earnest, rather than photographing the family cat or dog and posting them on the web
at small resolutions for respondents to say how fantastic a mundane and poorly rendered image was, so I have put up this page for people to comment on their experiance thus far with this camera, hope to hear from users out there who have had good or bad results from the camera. Do you perhaps regret the hasty purchase?
maybe you have had focusing issues with the camera? or love it and use it extensively? all the information will maybe help others decide on whether to lay down their hard earned on this camera, or maybe give people a good reason to wait and see whether it is the camera for them..
