Sunset and Posing Crested Pigeon, at Home.


A couple of Crested Pigeons turned up at the seed tray, so I grabbed the new camera for some practice. In the evening we finally had a decent sunset, so once again I thought I would check out the manual settings of have set up in 'preferred settings' mode. Getting decent photos of sunsets was my biggest fear with the new camera as it had no inbuilt 'sunset' mode (there was in my old model) but the new photos here have given me some hope.

  1. Such fabulous shots, Bill. The close-ups were brilliant and I simply loved the sunset photos too. What fantastic colours!

  2. The pigeons very very obliging, and I was happy to work out how to capture the colours of the sunset with the new camera.
