Hi all, here's another heron shot whilst waiting for the elusive kingfisher.

The heron landed on some stones in the river in a beam of sunlight, the dark background is the water, this is how it turned out with centre weighted, metering mode

Cheers for your C/Cs and awards on my last one.

Keith

The rocks, light and dark background work so well and serve to show off the heron's beautiful outline, a shapely "S" from the tip of the beak to the tail.
