Photographing Deer in the Cairngorms

Many of you know that I went up to the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland to photograph some of the winter wildlife which call the park home. One of wishlist photographs that I wanted, was a Red Deer stag, in and amongst, the pines trees. So as part of a Northshots tour, I managed to […]

Morkel Erasmus - Wayne – nice images! I usually would go for the vertical as it accentuates the tree trunks, but somehow the horizontal just speaks more to me, perhaps because it forms a kind of “window” through which to view the elusive stag??

Wayne - Thanks my friend. The landscape version is also my favourite.

Chasing Mountain Hares in the Cairngorms, Scotland

I guess looking over at the greener pastures on the other side of the fence, is just part of being human and we so easily forget to focus on our own local patch. I have been guilty of that over the past few years whilst living in the UK. I have neglected many of the […]

Peter Maris - Cool shots looks great. Stunning acenery with that snow. No snow here this year.

Wayne - Thanks for the comment Peter. We didn’t have any snow at Pete’s place either, in fact it was only on the mountain that they had. No snow south of London either this year. just not cold enough.

This choice would not be based upon the amount of likes, comments or shares that the photo received. Not whether it was a fantastic image of a lion kill, a […]

A 2013 photographic summary

Sitting in front of Adobe Lightroom and filtering all of my photos by year, I was surprised to see that 2013 was the least productive I have had in the last 8 years. Many years ago I would have been alarmed at that statistic, but when I think back to the 4 wonderful trips that […]

Anneli Marinovich - What a year. I think it’s definitely been of your best in terms of species captured in very diverse settings. Beautiful work as always – love the Lynx portrait close up & the zebra sunset.

Wayne - Cheers for all the support Mrs.M

Peter Maris - Some nice stuff here Wayne. I really like your mana pools shots and of course that second shot of the oxes in the snow.

Bavarian Forest National Park trip report

It had long been an ambition of mine to go to the Bavarian Forest National Park to photograph some of the larger predators that freely roam the continent of Europe. So I joined a four day workshop run by Chris Weston in October to have a closer look at some of the beasties on offer. […]

Peter Maris - Nice stuff Wayne, that bear sitting down is hilarious. Man did you know I have been that part of Germany at least 25 times last year. Never did I bother to bring the camera. Seeing this I think I made a mistake.

Wayne - you should definitely have a look. there is no cost to enter.
