I had the chance today to try out the new Fuji 100-400 zoom at Chester Zoo. Initial thoughts are the weight saving over my current NIkon kit is very welcome, but the autofocus is limiting in some circumstances. More to follow.
Here’s a few from the weekend when I visited Chester Zoo. The weather was terrible but at least it kept the crowds down. The elephant photos were taken in the dark of the elephant house while the cassowary ones were shot form the boat trip in the new Islands exhibit.
I was very pleased this week to find that I’d had a win in the works fortnightly photography contest. The theme was Black and White portraits and I took a bit of a risk entering a Chimpanzee photo, but everyone seemed to like it.
