Brandon Marsh Sunrise, Had planned a sunrise shoot on this Sunday, as the weather was just perfect, we were having some real hard frosty, foggy moody mornings in the week, Alan Ranger posted on the photography forum if any one was interested in attending just for meet up and walk, jumped at this one as not been before and previous photos seen by others looked stunning.
Up early for Sunday up and out at 7.00am, six of us managed to meet up, not the mist i was hoping for and at times the light wasn't brilliant but managed to get a few shots i was happy with, you are not stuck for composition here really is a beautiful, the ponds with two trees on small islands is stunning, certainly a place I'm going to revisit as we only covered a small part, The morning ended with a lovely bacon and sausage sandwich and cup of tea in there tea shop and chat and warm.
Brandon Marsh just outside Coventry, its the headquarters of the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Set in 220 acres, the Reserve, consists of large pools created by gravel extraction. The Visitor Centre is a great place to visit including a Tea Room and shop. ideal place for photography It consists of reedbeds, willow carr, grassland and woodland. It is outstanding for birds and there are eight bird hides throughout the reserve to use.

.Well after months of debating, searching and endless YouTube videos I decided on DJI latest drone, the "Mavic Pro" this was my first drone purchase. The convenience and size of this model just nocked the competition, this fits within my camera gear bag the Manfrotto advanced travel bag with ease.
You can be up and flying within a minute of switching on, just remove the gimbal clamp, unfold the arms switch on wait for GPS lock it runs through a series of pre flight checks and you are safe to fly,
Give it the command to take off and rises to 4ft and sits in the hover position, rock solid it really lulls you into a false sense of security on how easy it is to fly.
Everyone says you will crash your drone, "not me" never after spending this much I'm not going to push it......
This blog is intended to shed a little more information on what I'm up to and planning
