A beautifully framed image, Alan - there is a sort of 3D effect to the layers.
Is the bird deciding whether or not to fly into the mist .... or is it smog ... as the image was taken earlier today??!!

Wonderful layered effect Alan. 3.52 AM?
That is dedication or insomnia?
Thank you for reinforcement re 'No rules!'

I always love your touch with these images Alan the sweep of the branches creating a frame for the Hawk and the background trees just disappearing into the mist. Grin

Excellent work, Alan. The gradation of light from right to left and the misty silhouette of the more distant tree along with the position of the bird and framing with the nearest tree work as a great composition.

Another masterful piece of photography, very well crafted, processed and presented Alan.

The bird's stance suggests supreme proprietorial confidence. I can almost envisage the arch of trees bearing the legend lasciate ogni speranza voi ch'entrate. You haven't quite captured a feathered Cerberus, perhaps, but suggested how myths evolve. Creatively.

Abandon hope. This is the town park, but your burst of Italian* could be a motto for the whole town, I sometimes think.

* Other than English, in which I am passably fluent, I have only barely discernible smatterings of German and French, and a long forgotten introduction to فارسی
...on-line translator to the rescue!!

( Is there such a concept as "passably fluent" ? )

This would be superb even without the birdie - the arch of branches at the top, the ghostly tree beyond. I actually see the bird as communicating with an unseen accomplice in that other tree.
Bill has use done of my favourite quotes. Every year, Welcome to Prudhoe Happy Christmas goes up in lights over a bit of litter-stren waste land in the town centre, I would dearly love to be able to sabotage the wording...
Alternatively here, Quoth the pigeon, 'Nevermore'...

Excellent Alan, like the way the tree in the front of the image frames the one in the rear of the image, it looks like ther are two birds, another near the top and more to the right?

Really like this with or with out the birdsSmileSmileSmileSmile

I don't normally like leaving just the 'wow' type comment, but in this case ... "wow!!" Absolutely beautiful - stark, eerie and atmospheric.
