One of the more beautiful, yet very shy small bird species. A male and female, photographed about 100m apart, both alone.
The male was less cautious so I could get a little bit closer than the next photo.
As you can see, not a very large bird, sitting on a straw like that. For enhanced difficulty between me and the bird a lot of marshland that coul potentially have vipers in it. Not something I wanted to step upon in normal walking shoes.
Continuing on the first post on Tallinn. Sorry for the very slow updating, work has been totally immersive and the last thing on my mind after a workday has been to sit on the computer and type.
This post is mainly photos of Tallinn, street shooting so to speak. As cities go, Tallinn is, very friendly place to photograph and there are excellent backdrops for a nice background. Ultimately these photos may not be the best I have taken, but I like the mood an feel they can convey a little bit of the spirit of the city.
As is evident from these photos the weather was damp to say it nicely. But this of course can have its positive sides as well with reflections etc. Just a matter of spotting the positives I guess.
Small side streets for pedestrians in the old city.
The old city is mainly cobblestone so good shoes are a must.
To hold the hand of ones lover makes even the worst weather a bliss.
A bank, and in front a Mercedes S65 AMG.. Somehow goes to show how the bankers get rich while the rest of us well.. Don’t..
Students mingling on the streets in the afternoon.
Reflections. This scene immediately caught my eye. Lovely reflection and just a bit of waiting to get the people aligned in the right place.
All photos taken with old but trusty digital dinosaurs by Nikon.
Life is sometimes all smiles.
Have a nice Sunday where ever you are!
Monsoon season, one of the essentials of life in the tropics does make life difficult for a photographer. This young gentleman was very happy nonetheless and as our eyes met he smiled and I raised my camera and here we have the result.
As wildlife goes, not many species feel so majestic and beautiful as eagles. No wonder they are one of the most commonly used signs of Empires and Emperors past. Steller’s Sea Eagle is one of the biggest raptors in the world and also one of the most beautiful in my mind as well.
