It has been a long time since I have had to do a 'From the Archives' blog, but with very limited photo opportunities of late, I thought it was time to dig out a few old favourites of mine to share with you. If we don't take time to revisit our images, it sometimes makes you wonder what the point is. It is also worth seeing what kit was used as well, and it can remind you just how good it was, yet we wouldn't think abut going back to it in a month of Sundays.
Anyway, I was hoping to get a trip across to Skomer this year to take some more images of these delightful characters, but events dictated otherwise, and if they haven't all left their burrows yet, then they are about to, so it is too late now. So to make up for that disappointment, here are some I made earlier.
These images were taken originally either on Skomer or the Treshnish Isles, just off the Isle of Mull.
The first and last images were taken with the 20D, 70-200f4L + 1.4 EFTC on Skomer, the middle two with the 1Dmk2N and the 70-200 f2.8L on Lunga, Tresnish Isles
Not bad for rubbishy old 8megapixels cameras (which backs up what Dave was saying yesterday re. MP count and market/hype/bullshit)
