Back in 2013 I did a post about my friend the Beekeeper.You can read that here. I’ve always had a fascination for bees and often sit and watch them work their way over my lavender and other plants in my garden.
I sat there a few days ago with my Nikon Z6 and a 300mm lens, and this little guy shows up and places himself in profile. The shot is handheld, I supported the lens on my knees. It’s heavily cropped too, but as I wrote in the original article I never did buy that Macro lens. Although I hear that Nikon have now produced a 100mm Z-mount lens to a reasonable price. So who knows?
Just for a bit of fun here this the same shot in black and white. I’m still playing around in Capture One

One of my fav shots from last summers lockdown summer holiday. It’s an art gallery not far from my home. I had to photoshop out the crowds and a large crane over the trees but overall not a bad result.
As I promised last week I’m going to try and post one shot a week to re-start my blog.
I took this shot during our brief summer holiday last year The wood to build this church was first felled in the winter of 1180 the building began in 1183. Of the approx 1000 churches built there are 28 left Borgund is the one that is least altered.
