While I couldn’t get close-up images of wild geese, I found a few ducks at the park.
Since I’ve been posting more frequently, I decided to change the look of my blog. I mostly add Pictures, and galleries, and write less. So I decided to change the Theme to one that concentrates more on the images, rather than the text. The Twenty Fourteen was a great theme, but he featured images took up a considerable real estate on the page. So I picked a new theme, Visual. I hope you, my readers and visitors like it more.
One of the great methods of transportation are trains. Specially on really long distances. I love driving, but I think that for longer distances, trains are more convenient and much safer. Today I arrived at a train intersection and was the first car, so I decided to take a few shots, I didn’t have enough time to get out of the car, so I rolled my window down, and took a few pictures. I processed the in Pixlr Touch up, since I use a chromebook at home.
Winter in Hungary is pretty mild, up till now. We only had a few cm’s of snow so far, and it didn’t stay for too long. Seeing those snowdrops, which I believe should flower around March 20-21 according to Wikipedia looks a bit odd. But never the less, I enjoyed photographing it. I hope you like it too.
I experimented with using some built-in filters in the camera, and I think they turned out great.
I finally got around to make a bird feeder, from wood. The Sunday before returning to work. Not the best looking, but fits the bill. Found the wood in the garden thrown away, so I recycled it. We’ve been feeding the birds every winter, for the past 2 years, and at times there are like 15-20 of them on this Pear tree.
I hope next weekend I’ll get a chance to take more pictures of the birds.
I’ve been trying to photograph a Hawk for a long time. Today, it came to our garden. During the winter we feed the birds, and one of those became a victim to this Hawk, thanks to my wife who noticed it, I was able to finally take some pictures, although I had to use manual focus because of the branches, I did get a few useful images, I wish I could go closer, but as I took two steps, it flew away. One of my Facebook friends corrected me, its a Eurasian Sparrowhawk, not a Goshawk, Enjoy
