Ok this weeks photo is of a puffin, one of my favourite birds which I happened to photographed at one of my favourite places – the Shetlands!! Really looking forward to heading back there in July for 2 weeks.
Just a simple photo of a very striking subject.

I took this image just a couple of days ago at Østensjøvannet in Oslo, Norway. I was actually looking for Goldeneyes which usually spend a short about of time at the lake as they move north as the temperature increases but the lake is still frozen due to the cold temperatures we have been having. So I went for a walk on the lake and found a few swans and geese. This one is doing some sort of display to a couple of other geese sitting to the right out of frame.
Taken with the Canon 5D Mark III, 500mm f/4L IS + 1.4X teleconverter. ISO 800. 1/2000 sec @ f/8. Camera and lens resting on the snow to get as low an angle as possible. I used a Right Angle Finder to save my neck!!

Decided to start posting a ‘Photo of the Week’ every Sunday. I’m processing a lot of material at the moment and thought I’d share some of the images that really standout to me as some of my better work. Sometimes it might even be an image taken during that particular week but I’m notorious for loving an image one day and hating it the next so I generally ‘sit’ on images for a few months before I finally make up my mind!!
So to this weeks image – Taken last September at Lacs de Fenêtre, Switzerland. We were blessed with some wonderful colour in sky.
Taken with Canon 5D Mark III with Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L @ 38mm. ISO 100. 5 exposures bracket around 1/6 sec @ f/11. Processed in Photomatrix and Lightroom 4.
