  1. Favourite photos in November 18

    Badger chewing on a piece of straw. I've been observing several badger in my area over the last couple of years and most of the setts are in wooden locations and when the Badgers leave their setts just before sunset the lighting would get very low resulting in poor images. In this Badger sett however one of the entrances came out at the side of a field in which the local farmer had cut a swathe of land exposing this entrance. Now like in the the classic war film "The Great Escape" where the tunnel exit was too short and the prisoners being exposed for several metres until they reached the tree line, this being the same of these badgers, but instead of running for cover this one would start foraging for food in the strip of land resulting in some great images.

    I have never subscribed to Cameracraft but i know the editor David Kilpatrick off and on for near on 40 years went he edited Minolta's members magazine back in the 70's. All that i learned from David back then i put in good use even today. So it should be a excellent magazine to buy. Alan

    I must be doing something wrong, I'am still alive. Never mind I've still time to take more great images. Alan

    A portriat of Jeremy Corbyn leader of the British Labour Party. The lighting from a side window increasing the texture and depth in the face, just the classic hollywood portriat i.e. from "left to right' , light to dark to light and then dark. The reflection in the table top also helps the overall compostion of the image. Aaln
