Birds of a feather

On page 34 of N-Photo is­sue 70 the Cap­ture Flocks in Flight ar­ti­cle in­spired me to try tak­ing some­thing sim­i­lar. As is al­ways the case, I couldn’t find the mag­a­zine any­where when I needed it. So, I pro­ceeded re­gard­less and de­cided to ‘wing’ it when I got on lo­ca­tion. I headed into Belfast city cen­tre and to the Al­bert Bridge over the River La­gan where star­lings come to roost each evening. I got sev­eral pho­to­graphs of the birds and even man­aged some images of the sun­set over the city hills. On my re­turn, my wife greets me and says, “Is this the mag­a­zine you were look­ing for?” I re­al­ized I had all the wrong set­tings, but I still got a few pho­tos with my 18-55mm kit lens. Thanks for the in­spi­ra­tion. It was just the push I needed. Nial­lBoyle,vi­ae­mail We’re very glad to hear the ar­ti­cle had such a pos­i­tive ef­fect on your pho­tog­ra­phy, Niall. Yours is a sub­lime im­age that shows it isn’t the gear, but the pho­tog­ra­pher, that makes the dif­fer­ence. We es­pe­cially like the re­flec­tion of the bridge and the birds in the wa­ter, as well as the vi­brant pink hues. Well done!
