It was at the local light festival back in December (was hosted several places in Europe on the same day).
STC Media is just my own "brand" - so it's just my watermark on the image. I consider myself an amateur photographer, and post my best shots to my flickr page

Re: best photo you've taken

Classic Race Aarhus today (CRAA).. Took nearly 1100 pictures, 200 turned out okay - these 3 are absolute money shots, if you ask me. Very pleased with them

Re: best photo you've taken



This was a White Tailed Sea Eagle over a boat I was on near the Correyvrecken Whirlpool in Scotland. It was taken with the kit lens which was a 18-105mm which means it was working at the limit of its capabilities.

Beautiful bird. Saw one up close at a raptor centre last week.

We spotted this bird, and its mate, by chance and were very lucky that one of them flew directly over the boat. The Skipper drew them to our attention when he saw dozens of Kittywakes nesting on a cliff face and, as we looked, they took off en-masse. He then pointed out the reason why; two Sea Eagles.

I have a couple of other images from that encounter which I'll try and post as they show what can happen when the prey stands up to the hunter.

Took this today. Accidentally left the sepia filter on but still came out well I think.

Re: best photo you've taken

Pretty damn impressive. That's one hell of a shear drop.

Re: best photo you've taken

Thanks, yeah it was a drop I didn't fancy going off! Definitely worth keeping closer to the edge for a better look though!

I had a winning shot!

My photo of my son Ethan monkeying around at Belfast zoo won the best Adventurer photo section in the Belfast Zoo photo competition.

The crowned lemurs (top) or the prairie dogs (2nd). Lol.

One of the photographers said that I should have tweaked the photos a bit to perfect them. They were just as taken. To be honest, most of my shots are quick shots - 6 year olds somehow don't want to wait around!

Btw here's one my 6 year old took of Lulu (one of the oldest cheetahs in captivity). He's the upside-down boy featured in my photo above. He got his first camera from Santa last Christmas. I think he's not doing too badly.
