After a winter break, I’m back! First with a series of images from Forest Farm in north Cardiff which I’ve visited many times and which has a vibrant wildlife and interesting habitats lodged between the River Taf and the remains of the Glamorganshire Canal.
So the first one is a shot of one of the few birds, actually probably the only one, which I dislike – the Grey Heron. Why my negative feelings? Well … one visits the small pond in our garden quite regularly and takes my goldfish. So much so, that I now have to keep it covered with netting. I have thought perhaps I ought to equate my loss of goldfish with the cost of the bird food I purchase for all the other birds that visit our garden – but it’s a difficult one to accept!
It’s not a bad shot. I have recovered quite a lot of colour from the shot in post-processing, but the main reason for the inclusion of this one is just to celebrate – one year on from its purchase – the amazing sensor of my Sony A7r III which allows me to produce an image with such sharpness as the one above, from the original image, below.
