Robin in Winter

Shot details: Nikon D90 with Nikkor 70-300mm lens @ 300mm & f5.6 1/200sec ISO 400 +2/3 Stop
Location: Singleton Park, Swansea.

I was trying get a cliched ‘Robin in the Snow’ shot for next years Christmas cards but I guess he had cold feet. This was shot with a relatively slow shutter speed both for the focal length and flighty subject but got I away with it. Camera was set at +2/3 stop as the day was very bright due to mostly everything being covered in snow and the camera was tending to underexpose. It’s always worth taking a few test shots on snowy days as most cameras struggle and snow ends up being a dull grey due to under exposure.
