Digiscoping in the Golden Hour

Justin Carr

Last Sunday saw me arrive at Flamorough before the sunrise ( not the norm for me ). It was a clear starry morning soI headed for Thornwick Pool to wait for the sun to come up. The next 6 hours or so where spent in the great photography hide, part of the mutli-facted new vision of Flamborough Bird Observatory. Anyway back to business. As it got light I could see there was a juvenile Knot present. Ss it got lighter the bird came to within a few metres of the hide.

The shots below shows images taken from before the sunrise through to the harsh light of midday for me its interesting to see the effect the light has on how the bird looks.

I hope Iv’e inspired all the budding Photographers to get up early just once in a while the results might just be worth the effort.

All images taken a Swarovski ATX 85.
