At the weekend we visited Littlehampton on the south coast of England. It was a scorcher, so we headed for the beach:
These next shots were all taken with a 300mm lens plus a 1.4x teleconverter - when there's loads of light, teleconverters come into their own. Stopping down to f8 doesn't really prevent you taking sharp images in the way that it does on gloomier days.
I love the backgrounds produced by shingle - very colourfull!
On the way out we spotted these two Herring Gull chicks wondering around on a roof top near the car park (again, the car park is often the best place to look!)...
This one seemed to be having problems navigating the slippery roof - it managed it in the end though!
