Glasto

A week of trying to get a decent sunrise photograph of Glastonbury Tor and not alot of success largely due to rather inclement weather conditions coupled with a degree of lazyness on my part.  This is the best I could manage.

No Deer

An evening walk in search of Deer – no luck – with the harvest in full swing I think they have headed for the hills – nice sunset though.

Deer Stalking

On an evening walk last night I spoted this fellow (male roe deer) in a wheat field but typically I didn’t have anything longer than 60mm with me and he was a long long way off.  So this evening I went out again but this time with the 300mm (600mm FF) in hand to see if I could find him again.  I did but again he has a long way off in fading light and very flighty.  These are big crops and ok a full resolution but don’t bear much further enlargement.

The Fence

On the way back from the expedition to the coast I spotted a large goat farm with many goats – there used to be goats all over Fuerteventura but I think it is an industry that is dying out – not surprisingly since I think young Fueteventurans would rather surf or open a coffee shop that herd goats and who can blame them. Frankly goats stink !
