At last a bright day for photography

Today is the first day in weeks where I haven't had to check the shutter speed.  The light has been stunningly clear today and gave me an opportunity to get to grips with a pair of Great Northern Divers in Newlyn Harbour.  Normally quite distant when feeding offshore, better photo opportunities can be found within the harbour walls.  Newlyn is one of the best of Cornish sites for close views of this impressive bird.

EXIF Detail: Aperture priority.  F/6.7  Shutter speed 1/1000s. Exposure 0.0EV. ISO 400. Centre weighted metering. Focal length 1000mm (600mm F/4 plus 1.7xTC).


  1. Sunday was the day but unfortunately I had other things to do, you have done well lately considering the weather conditions, you can't keep a good photographer down. Superb set of images.

  2. Super shots, saw it over in Newlyn this morning - ah! for a better camera - but I have to have a fairly lightweight one, and be able tohang on to a dog lead ! Sue
