The Hawk Conservancy

March 24th, 2009 by Iain · No Comments

Courtesy of T4 Cameras, Canon and my dad (he sent me the newsletter :-D ) I had a fabulous day out at the Hawk Conservancy near Andover on Sunday.  (Yes, I spent Mother’s Day with my dad…)  They put on some wonderful, informative and humourous flying displays and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

I took 396 shots on the day :shock: so sorting through them will take a while, though on my first pass I immediately deleted 150.  :-D   The Black Kite below is a firm favourite, and I just wanted to get a post up to recommend the Hawk Conservancy.  It’ll be a little while before more get added to the gallery.

Black Kite

Canon 350D, 180mm, f/5.6, 1/1600, ISO 200

In processing it I cropped, upped the exposure by 1, brightness to 0, contrast up a little, and applied a little bit of sharpening.
