Holiday Snaps…………

18 Sep

Okay, I know we’ve been to Skiathos before, but we’ve been again Ok?……:)

This time around I was looking for something a little different and found a spot up on a hill that overlooked the town and the flight path of incoming aircraft!……..;)

I was using quite a “tight” lens so it really isn’t as close as it looks but I’m not sure I’d want to live in the town during summer?…….;)

Of course we found the usual wildlife suspects too!…………

Eleonora’s Falcon

The Warbler Family!….;)

The Grey heron

…….and the little Egret (‘aint she cute!….)

We are constantly amazed at the colour of Skiathos, hardly surprising when we live in the UK, but wherever you point a camera there is a different wonder to behold!………..

Vromolimnoss in the morning light……

Xanemos mid day…….

….. and Kechria in the evening………

No doubt we will be back again, but this will keep us going for the next few months!……

Have a good week!………….;)

    Beautiful photos! Makes me want to be there right now…

    As an aside, I was wondering what camera you use? I’ve been looking to purchase a new camera (right now I only have a compact), and any suggestions or advice is very welcome!

    Hi Dounia, Thanks for your comment, makes it all worthwhile!…….;)
    I use a Nikon D300 with a 10-20 Sigma for the landscapes and either a 70-200 nikon or a 300 nikon prime with X1.7 & X2 tele extenders for everything else, to be honest choice of camera is both very personal and very dependant on what your subject is likely to be, however without having someone close who’s camera you can use the best option is to check out your local retailer and TRY them all out to see what suits you!…… not only do you get what you want, but you have great fun with someone else’s gear!……:)
