Winter morning

Originally uploaded by Cobra_11
When I got up this morning, I went to look out of the window... and this lovely scene was waiting for me. I grabbed my camera, opened the window and made some shots. I also wanted to get some shots of birds, but none of them would show up (they were obviously smarter than me and didn't fly around in the cold). So, I stood by the open window, still in my pyjamas, at almost 10 degrees below zero, freezing to death - naturally, I had to be there just in case some splendid bird would come flying around. I didn't want to lose a potentially great opportunity for taking a photo just because I had to get dressed! But the freezing eventually payed off! I managed to make a photo of a crow in flight (the photo is already on my Flickr site)! Sometimes, it pays off to "suffer" a bit ;-)

I've been on Flickr for a year and I finally got the honour to get one of my photos published! Schmap decided to include my photo of Hotel Danieli in their "Schmap Venice Sixth Edition" guide! This is the first time that I got my work published!! I'm so proud and happy!! :-) Do congratulate me on my achievement! ;-)

Back to Nature...

Blue tit

I have taken quite a few bird photos recently. This little fellow is a regular guest at my feeder (seed bowl, actually) on my window sill. It's a blue tit and it's among my favourite birds. These birds are so cute that you simply can't resist taking a photo of them :-) This boy knows no fear whatsoever. The shot was taken at a distance of about 15 to 20 cms - only the window glass between the two of us... He actually looked as if he was enjoying the company of me and my camera :-)
