Away From The Coast

After several sessions photographing waders along various stretches of the North West coastline I have turned my attention to our gorgeous woodland. Crawling through mud and leaves made a change from crawling on wet sand and salt marsh, it was better for the camera too, with no chunks of sand finding its way into all the nooks and crannies of the image stealer. Light, light give me light. At best, by the very nature of photographing in a forest the best you’re going to get is dappled lighting, but this can be very effective both on the subject or the backdrop. At worst when it clouds over the range of subtle hues can work fine, but tends to leave the overall image a little flat. Anyhow here are a few results from the last couple of shoots....... first needing no introduction is the Red Squirrel....

And secondly a very inquisitive Jay....more on the website.....



  1. Superb David all of them, but for me the Jay image swallowing the Acorn is a cracking shot!

  2. A brilliant set of images David,must agree the jay is great but for me the second image of the squirrel with that perfect light and background is my fav.

  3. Unbelievably good David. I absolutely love the squirrel with the warm colours. Terrific and very enjoyable to view.
