There's been some truly excellent photographs this year by all of you and I can imagine you've had a hard time choosing only four as I have. You know most of my shots are birds but I didn't want to stick with them so I tried to pick something a bit different. Spider Face On. I've tried many times to get a close up of spider looking straight on trying to get all the eyes in focus. I didn't quite get the eyes as the face is a bit dark but I like the way the flash has lit up the legs showing them to be almost see through. Sunrise at the Coast. This was taken one chilly morning in October when I forgot to turn off the alarm on a day off and was rudely awaken at 5:30am. So rather than turn over back to sleep I took advantage of the clear sky and went for the sunrise. Breaking the Surface. This was my Favourite shot from about five hundred when I tried photographing water drops. It looks like the shot was caught just as the drop was about to break the surface of the water and the colour of the glass I used gives a nice golden glow to the image. Puffin Portrait. Well I had to pick one bird shot. I picked this one because it's not often you get to photograph Puffins with a Macro Lens and it reminds me of a great trip onto Skomer just off Pembrokshire. They always remind me of a sad looking clown.
