    Castle Visitors day

    I went to a visitors day of a nearby castle. Despite the harsh high sun and the lots of people I managed to get some neat shots I think. There was also a bird show with beautiful birds.

    #1 The man and the Falcon

    Castle Visitors day
    1/3200 secs . f/5.6 . ISO 200 . 98 mm



    #2 Exciting moments

    Castle Visitors day
    1/1000s . f/5.6 . ISO 200 . 77 mm




    #3 The Owl

    Castle Visitors day
    1/250s . f/5.6 . ISO 200 . 125 mm

    I know it's quite a standard shot but I really like owls. Their eyes are so beautiful.



    #3 Watch your Back

    Castle Visitors day
    1/400s . f/5.6 . ISO 400 . 125 mm

    Absolutely one of my favourites.



    #4 Concentration

    Castle Visitors day
    1/320s . f/11.0 . ISO 200 . 109 mm

    #5 Lonely Punishment

    Castle Visitors day
    1/400s . f/11.0 . ISO 200 . 23 mm

    I couldn't resist to look for some B&W shots. The castle was quite small but I found this place quite beautiful. The wall and the punishment thing ( I don't know what it is in English anyway) have quite a nostalgic and sinister look and the tower contrasts this as it's looks posh. The clouds with the sun behind the wall completed it.

    What do you think of this series? (At least I head fun with it)

    Look at Rob's reply to your other posting of this image. His jokes are awful, but this contains the answer to your question.

    Very attractive. The birds are wonderfully sharp. Your angle on the first one, with the bird above you, adds to a great sense of elegance, as well as power and determination.

    Somehow these kind of birds tends to gain senses of them being beautiful and dangerous at the same time immediately. Though they really get what they deserve when they fly through the air instead of standing on their spot like #3.

    Interesting bird shots here. Very sharp. I am an owl fan too, although we only have small ones here.

    Thank you Kit,
    Bird shows are the place to be for shooting owls.
    Do you mean that you've owls yourself? Do you have any pictures of them?
