7 photographers kitted out with lenses that made us look like we were compensating for something set off from London on the long drive up to Donna Nook on the Lincolnshire Coast.

We spent the Saturday and Sunday there. Mixed weather but it didn't rain so thats all that matters.

So this post everyone can share their images

Ian

Glad you started the thread and it was 8 of us last time "I counted us all out & counted us all back in" :lol:

The golden glow on #1 is the stunner in that group ~ the light was challenging but had its 'great' moments ;)

Here is one from me of the first cut of the set I took.

Shows the effect of the wind picking up the sand at low level across the beach & boy did it blow hard!!!

This and any others I will post were taken using the 100-400mm ~ I think over 85% of them at 400mm end of the zoom, was trying to maintain good 'safe' distances - they can move quickly once on the move!

Lovely shots guys. I'll post my efforts later. On another note, previous pics i've posted look soft but on my computer the are sharp. Can someone explain the best way to show pics with all the compression artifacts that i keep getting? I export from Aperture, send to photobucket and link from there, but the images always seem soft?

I have read comment that Photobucket can do that to some (all) images ~ try this, prep an image (800px longest side etc) keeping the file size down to about 120kb and post it as an attachment here & as linked image at PB to see if there is a discernable difference ???

#1 and #5.. are adorable. I never really thought about wildlife photography being that precious. I'm guessing the long drive was worth it.

For sure! This was the first time for all of us to DN and it is an experience I would recommend.

:D I stayed in range of that little guy & his (its?) sleeping companion for a reasonable time and have a few of him when awake but at this time I liked his look of contented slumber best.

Here's a few from my set,
A fantastic weekend alround, it's a shame I wasn't fitter! The walk back after a days shoot with a heavy trolley is a killer!

Thanks again to everyone who organised.
Most shot with 1dIII and EF 400 f/2.8 + 1.4TC
