Thanks CLick.

I'm getting 2x TC III. 560mm is not long enough ;D

Yes, and the next step after this one... 600 f4L IS II   ;)   (and the use of the combo 1.4 TC III,  2X TC III)


 :)
I did have that thought one. Anything can happen  ;)

Hi Keith.
That is stunning proof that the 7D is everything I hoped it would be and I'm not as good as I'd like to be!
Fantastic shot, you are correct about the background adding context, I think it tells a great story, not least of which is that you are capable of putting yourself in a great spot for a picture.

Gannet, Bempton, E. Yorkshire coast, England:

7D, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS and 2x, handheld at 600mm.

I picked this scene as a deliberate challenge: Gannets aren't that hard to shoot against clean, featureless backgrounds, but a busy background like this is hard work for a camera's AF.

I also chose it because the context it provided for the image - there's more of a story here with all the nesting birds beneath the subject.

Incoming Puffin, Farne Islands, north east coast of England:
This is a favorite bird of mine. Very colorful, yet with very sad eyes. I planned to shoot some on the north coast of Norway this summer, but when I finally got to the right island (Lovund, with the biggest puffin population in Norway), the weather decided not to cooperate (fog). So I´ll have to wait until next year ...

Very good shot!

Edward, could you please share some more info with us. How long have you been doing this, how much practice, how do you set up your 1DX etc. It would be most interesting to know.

Lots of good images on your web site also.
