Birds of prey – Czech Republic

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

I’ve just got back from tutoring on two birds of prey workshops in the Czech Republic for Tatra Photography. Conditions were very challenging. On the second morning the sun made a brief appearance and at one point we even had a splattering of snow, butĀ apart from that light levels were low. Despite this everyone came away with some great shots. Here are some of my favourites, all of which were taken with the new Canon EOS 1DX.

A special thanks to Helena Kuchynkova for providing these amazing birds.
