Low Flying

Postby Blow-in » Tue Aug 30, 2016 3:11 pm

These are some GXR A16 24 - 85 taken at Dunrobin Castle (Scotland) where they stage 2 falconry demonstrations daily. These are some Peregrine shots.

The first gives you the context with the castle backdrop (spot the birdie).

Quite interesting to see, we dont get any such flying here.
The castle looks like Hogwarts

Thanks Andy. I don't think I'll win any prizes for wildlife or sport photography but it was a very interesting people watching experience. Sometimes I wonder if we ever actually see anything these days given our focus on capturing stuff on our phones, tablets or even cameras.
