The lighting was perfect and we spent our time explaining metering, composition, focus points and more that we're appropriate for landscape work. It was a constant race against the sun to keep it just out of the image but create interest with the ever present glow coming over the cliff top. Set up the tripod, compose, take the shot, move, set up the tripod, etc., etc. I should apologise at this point for the image quality on this report as most of the photos were taken with my iPhone. As on all our workshops I try and keep my own camera use to a minimum so as to always be available to help the participants but I can always grab a quick shot with the good old iPhone.
Out came the long lenses and an impromptu bird session ensued. In the end we had to drag the group away kicking and screaming to continue our trip eastwards to Trephina Gorge.
Tomorrow we're off to the Alice Springs Reptile Centre and back to the Alice Springs Desert Park for another go at those birds in flight. It is going to be a ripper.
