Flying birds at 1/8000s.
Roy Hancliff takes shots of birds at 1/8000s speed. It freezes the picture. Roy explains:
When I take the shot its so quick I don’t see it. Our eyes simply aren’t fast enough to register all the action that is happening right in your own back garden.
It’s only afterwards when I check what I have that I know what images I’ve got. You really have no idea of what you are getting until you review the pictures later.
I’m stunned by the beauty of a regular bird you see all the time suddenly looking very different when it’s frozen in time.
‘I’ve managed to document behaviour that you just can’t see without technology to help you.
People are really shocked when they look at my photos, because it shows those moments they never get to see normally.
