Wild Goose Close-Up

Here is a photo that I shot yesterday. There is a pond in one of the parks and I found wild gooses and they came pretty close. So, I managed it to take some close-up photos. I also saw fledglings that I could photograph. I will upload these photos later or another day. I also had a bit of small talk with strangers who watches the birds too. I even chatted with another photographer. Continue reading Wild Goose Close-Up

Grey Goose

I found this photo of a grey goose in my library. During the warm seasons it’s quite easy to find them. Outside of the city they are often on fields or near water.

Flying Greylag Goose

I found this flying greylag goose (Anser anser) during my walk through the Schellbruch reserve. The goose flew by far away and that was not really a perfect situation for my 18-105mm kit lens. So, I had to crop the images heavily and I also had to bump up the noise reduction in Lightroom to remove pixels and noise, sadly for the cost of sharpness. Anyway, you can get some interesting results with a kit lens and I still would not suggest to skip the kit lens when you purchase a DSLR camera, because for me as a beginner it … Continue reading Flying Greylag Goose
