Image of the Month

Image of the month for June 2011 is awarded to Mike Jones for his excellent photograph of this Barn Owl.

Mike receives  a £30 voucher to spend on any of our digital, canvas or traditional printing services. Congratulations Mike!

Equipment and technique

The image was taken using a Canon 7D with a 500mm f4 lens. Taken on “Aperture priority” the aperture was f8 with a shutter speed of 1/320s and a ISO setting of 400.

Although 95% of my Wildlife and Landscape Photography is taken within the western Isles of Scotland I do actually get to capture some images on the mainland. I have always held a fascination for Barn Owls and photographing this bird closer to home I was just lucky enough to be present when this subject decided to stretch its wing and present an excellent photo opportunity.

Mike Jones Biography

Mike is primarily a Wildlife photographer with a growing interest in Landscape work. Mike was born in Chester in 1959 and has held a passion for Photographu since his late teens. After eventually admitting defeat for using film for Wildlife work, Mike has immersed himself in the digital world and has utilised his love for Scotland’s wildest places and his knowledge of the great outdoors to pursue his passion for Wildlife and Landscape photography on the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. With a single minded approach and a determination to stick it out whatever the weather of time of day, Mike will never be happy until he has taken the illusive perfect picture.
