So what have I been up to over the month? Well to start with I was using medium and large format photography to capture interesting landscapes of the natural world around Cornwall, I have attached one of the images below. Taken on a Bronica camera at Hells Mouth, Cornwall.
Over this term I have been on a number of dives with Panasonic GX1 camera in a underwater housing and single strobe. During these dives I have seen a Grey Seal (Halichoerus grypus) , a pod of Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops), Velvet Swimming Crabs (Necora puber), Wrasse (Labridae), Common Starfish (Asterias rubens), Spiny Starfish (Marthasterias glacialis) and lots lots more, our coastline is truly amazing. I have included a couple of my favourite images below for more look at my flickr site, please let me know what you think?
Rock Goby - Gobius paganellus
Velvet Swimming Crab - Necora puber
In-between work I signed up for three trips with a local photographer, David Chapman. In these trips we visited Windmill Farm, Bunny's Hill, Bedruthan Steps and Kynance Cove. During these trip we mainly focused on the few flowers that had emerged even with the late spring we have been having, in the trips to Woodmill Farm we were able to also photograph some damselflies and dragonflies. Some of my best images are below.
