Monkey Forest

Spent the Day at Monkey Forest. The 140 Barbary Macaques monkeys roam freely in a 60-acre forest. As you enter the park you will observe the monkeys living in their fascinating society, as they would in the wild. No cages or bars, your right in there with them.

I used the new Sony Alpha 200 with a Sigma 600mm F8 lens and a 70-300mm Sigma zoom.

Taken at 6.00 am on the way back from Manchester airport. I liked the Ploughed field and the dish was facing the right way.

Thanks for looking

York Weekend.

Spent the weekend in York with my Dad and StepMom who were over from Canada. Took lots of snaps, as it was the first day's out with the new Sony Alpha 200. I was trying to get used to all the new dials and settings.I have not been to York since I was young but had a wonderful time.
