Craft Weekend

Hi all

I've just some back from a super crafting weekend in a log cabin in the woods with eight of my crafty friends.  It was so cool.  We had a fab time, crafting busily away, watching dvd's, drinking wine, taking photo's, walking in the woods and generally having a good old laugh. 

I'll have more to show soon, but for the moment, here's a photo I shot this morning.


I'm really pleased with this photo.   I crouched for ages on soggy wet leaves, snapping away with my Canon EOS 450D,  The shutter noise didn't seem to bother this pheasant, it just kept pecking away happily in the undergrowth.  I'm working on the other photo's, so they're not ready yet, but I'll post a few more when they've been edited.

Glad you had a good time Debbie, great photo! My friends and I have a few days organised in June to craft together in a cottage. We all live apart, so it's a lovely chance to get together. I can appreciate what a lovely time you must have had, because I'm looking forward to my break so much, Judith x

Aggghh!! Is it Monday already?? I've just seen your stunning pheasant, and remembered I was supposed to collect my SU punch this evening!! Honestly, I'm so dippy!! My head is so full of redundancy and looking for a new job, I completely forgot. Sorry, hun. At least it's paid for! Could you email me, please, and say which other evening would suit you for me to pop round and pick it up? My apologies once again.

Anyway, it sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, and I LOVE the photo! It's an absolute classic. Can't wait to see the others. You clever stick!

Hugs,
Chris xx

The image image is very vibrant and clear, what lens do you use with the Canon?

Debbie said...

Hi Cali.

The lens I used for this shot was a Canon zoom lens EF-S 55-250mm 1:4-5.6 IS

Hope this helps.
