A View From The Cliffs

Whatever the weather, a wander along the cliff path is never a waste of time, the views are constantly changing and the soundtrack never gets boring. The walk starts through the woods where Robin competes with Wren, Wren competes with Blackbird, Blackbird competes with Woodpecker all trying to out decibel each other. In the Spring the tiny Chiffchaff joins the band and the airwaves are full.
Reach the cliffs and the sounds are different. The waves of course are constant, beating an endless drum against the rocks, creating the coastline that we know so well. The birds change too although you can still hear the woodland, gulls and Guillemots take over with the occasional screech of the Peregrine as it slices through the sky.
Not a bad start to the day.DSC08106

About Julian Sawyer

It is easy these days to spend hours processing shots on a computer, removing twigs or imperfections, changing colours to make the shot more pleasing or even adding something that may be missing, but I do not do that. Nature, by its very design, is perfectly imperfect and that is how I want my photographs to be. Sometimes the light is not quite right, sometimes the animal will not pose in the way I want or decides to stay hidden, that is the beauty of wildlife photography and I find it frustratingly magical.
