  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    Brilliant...love the close up detail.
    I wonder why they have that long nail...it looks like it could get caught in something and get pulled off...ouch.

    Lovely shot. I like the barbs against the claws of the bird, a great contrast.

    Nearly forgot to say, "thanks eveyone :wave: "

    Initially I thought they were Skylarks, because I could hear a lot of them in the area, but then decided these were Medow Pipits due to the extra long claw, the wings and the beak. I am far from being any bird ID expert.
