Caption: This lovely tiny bird was so friendly that it ate out of ones hand. Ulva Island is a predictor free island at 47 South and is home to a wide range of birds, the Shining Cuckoo and the Saddleback and other wildlife. One could spend days there.

About astrophotographer

astrophotographer

I am very keen on astrophotography, atmospherics and nature photography.The passion for photography has been with me for 60 odd years and is still as strong as ever.My first camera was a 127 format given to me when I was 8yrs old, my father showing us how to develop film, in the bathtub, needless to say it became stained much to my mothers annoyance.I guess my profession, Radiography, was a natural way to combine taking pictures with a hobby, most radiographers in my training years had cameras so we all took photos and compared them, always striving to outdo each other.I have always had an interest in Infra-Red photography and we used to play around with IR film in the B&W days, of course we have advanced so much in the digital world of IR I had my camera converted for IR only...it was a bonus as the exposures are as if it was a white light camera. Fast shutter speeds and the resulting images are sometime bad but mostly intriguing. Although I enjoy my work in helping the patient the time has come at the end of 2014 to drop to three days a week, get out on my motorcycle(s) and take a few more photos of the natural world.
