From The Window

The latest post in my series of 'From The Window'.
As the tree outside of the lounge window is in full flower now, I thought it would be a good opportunity to shoot some birds amongst the blossom. Although its never a great idea to shoot through double glazing, which usually means a lot of post shooting work with software to make a reasonable finished product.

  13. I'm so glad I scrolled down to see all of these! What wonderful birds you have! I understand the shooting through the window because if you open the door and go out, they all fly away. Here in Maine I have old fashioned windows with old fashioned storm windows on the outside. It is even more of a challenge than shooting through double glazing! I may have to come up with a new strategy for my bird photography! It certainly makes my photos very blurry!

    1. Thanks Kathie, yes the trick is to get the lens as close to the glass as possible.
