I recieved an email from the Daily Mail on Thursday; they were running a story in the Friday edition about plastic bags and wanted to pay me to use my photo of a Great Crested Grebe to go with it. This is a picture that I took in London almost 12 months ago. Nothing has come of this in the end – but like the Oscars, it was a honour to be nominated! 🙂

This New Forest tree sits on a road bend at the top of a dip and has little else around it. It has pride of place at one of the highest points in the New Forest and you can view it almost in isolation on a full 360 panoramic. Many days I have watched the sunrise and sunset behind this tree, it’s just a matter of direction.
Apparently the area gets its name from the fact it was used as a mass grave during the second world war… I don’t know if this is true or not, just picked it up from a partial accademic paper on the net!New Forest, Dead Man’s Hill, Sunrise, Photograph, Roger Penny Way, Fordingbridge. B3078
I got a new camera at the weekend. I’ve been wanting a real camera for a while and this was my Christmas/Birthday present. For those who are interested in such things; it’s a Canon EOS 400d, which I got with a SIGMA 70-300mm DG APO MACRO lens.
Here are a few of my initial tinkering photos.
