This was the year my camera usage (and hopefully proficiency) increased significantly. My subject matter and trips also seemed more plentiful offering me more opportunities to take photographs. I'll need to post specifically for some trips taken in 2016 but I'll start with general stuff from last year.
First, a trip to a local nature reserve on a cold February morning prove fruitful. Helpfully this reserve has some well stocked bird feeders that attract a multitude of species down especially in the morning and I was lucky to grab one or two shots here.
On a clear night in April I did a little experimenting trying to get a good picture of a lovely moon. Not too bad an effort.
Then a local festival in June had some owls on display. I can't recall all the breeds now, so these are my best guesses at naming, but they were lovely specimens.
