Having returned a short time ago from a trip to The Cook Islands and the abundance of floral beauty along the roadside to photograph. Now it is what use to be known as "February Fill Dyke." Of course the first of the flowers to appear on Widbrook was the Marsh Marigold, also known as Water Bubbles. These were followed very closely by Cellendines, Violets and wild Primroses in the hedge banks of Cookham Dean in particular. So now is the time to get your camera gear ready as soon there will be lots to photograph.

Have you ever wondered why ladies in the South Pacific wear flowers over their ears. Well go to the blog and find out.

The photo in this blog is just a sample of what you can do today with a digital camera. I know some smart Alec or Alice is going to say "We don't have Lotus blooms in an English Garden!" No perhaps not but there are a great many other blooms that you can turn your camera lens and focus on. For instance, what about a Flag Iris, have you ever taken a close look at that bloom? Also at the same time you are taking that photo a bee will come along and enhance your photo. Any way get ready now to have fun. Take a look at the oil paintings of Magnolias by Sir Stanley Spencer and see the detail he captured.
To me Stanley was a fine digital artist, and you to can be with your camera.

It does not have to be a bright sunny day to take photographs, and when the situation arises then you take advantage of the situation.

I have now added yet another camera to my arsenal. This unit covers all the things that I could not do with the other two cameras, one of which is underwater photography in both video and still time lapse. You also have to download a 64 page instruction manual from the website.

It is not often that one can get a clear enough day to take a still photo of an object some 40-50 miles away, as it is with this skyline photo of The Olympic mountains of Washington State from Vancouver Island. It was not the brightest of February mornings, but the subject was clear and visable.

When the subject turns up and lets you have time to erect your tripod and camera to take either a still or video shot it is always a thrill to see the result as it happened today. Wildlife can be most unprodictable as they will move out of the frame before you get a chance to start filming. Once again don't forget to click on the bottom right hand corner to get a full screen presentation.

Now here is a very useful tool to have with you at all times, especially when you are away from your home. Even in the home it is always a good idea to use thjis when cleaning or making a lens change to your camera.

Video is becoming a bigger part of our lives everyday. Just a few short years ago, sharing video online was a pipe dream - today we have YouTube, Vimeo, Google Videos... And with cameras becoming cheaper and easier to use, more and more people are jumping into the video creation business. But even with so many new creators entering the market, it's always obvious who the real pros are. The Internet is awash is poorly made, poorly planned videos that no one will ever watch. And why not? Because if you want to stand out, you can't just upload grainy footage from your smartphone. You need to know how to make video that looks good, that sounds good, and grabs people's attention.

This is why I am putting in a plug for the Bourne End Video Makers. I have attached their latest video promo for you to take a look at and see what you you could gain from being a member.

It was most heartening to hear via the grapevine that the Bourne End Movie Makers have two new members from Cookham. It is much to ones advantage, when you can learn so much more when you are part of a team. It is a very fast growing hobby/business, besides being part of the action, you can achieve so much more with your own work.

I have just put up two different videos. One is made up from stills, the second is a video of the same subject.

Spring has sprung in some regions of the world, while some parts are still suffering from the onslaught of winter! My two gulls that have made their home on the flat roof, seem to be getting ideas of having a family, though no signs as yet from them gathering nesting materials. Remember to get a larger picture, just click on the small one.

Once again my ever willing subject has supplied me with an eyeful of material. It is hard to figure that a seagulls eyes are seven times more powerful than a human eye. Though they seem to see food in the offing from as far as half a mile away.

Does anyone know of any websites where I could find some mediocre shots of seagulls?

Nice thought James, but I am not getting any flowers. Happy Easter anyway.
