Whilst Katrina was on the nature photography workshop with Kim Westerskov – Warren took Helen & JP up The Mount. Warren experimented with some long exposure shots during the day, using a B+W 10 stop filter – this allowed shutter speeds of up to 30 seconds. Atop The Mount, were many fantails. Unfortunately, Warren only had the Canon 1D III + 17-40mm (wide angle) – so it wasn’t easy to capture the very small fantails as they fluttered about.
