Nicholas Crane at the EWT AGM

On Saturday I was up at Walton-On-The-Naze to photograph the Essex Wildlife Trust AGM, which amongst other things had Nick Crane as guest speaker, and saw the official opening of the Crag Walk, a defence system to preserve the heritage of the Naze.

After last year's AGM, when Chris Packham was the special guest, I was really looking forward to this event, and it turned out to be a great one again, with even more people and an equally enjoyable talk by Nick.  It was especially nice to see so many people down on the beach after the Crag Walk opening too.

Here are a few photos from the day, many more have been forwarded to Essex Wildlife Trust for their publications.

Pentax K-5, DA*300mm lens @ f/4, 1/250s, ISO400, handheld.

Pentax K-5, Sigma 105mm lens @ f/4, 1/350s, ISO400, handheld.

Pentax K-5, DA*300mm lens @ f/4, 1/250s, ISO400, handheld.

Pentax K-5, DA16-45mm lens @ 16mm, f/9.5, 1/180s, ISO100, fill-flash, handheld.

And for something a bit more normal for me, the day before I was providing some 1-2-1 photography tuition at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, and took this photo of a Echinacea flower.

Pentax K-5, DA*300mm lens @ 6.7, 1/125s, ISO200, Tripod.

One thing I noticed when sorting this flower photo for the web, is how much better Firefox is for viewing images than Internet Explorer or Chrome.  The colours look just as I want them, whereas they're a bit intense with the others.  One of the problems with design for the internet, so many variables...
