Rooks

By sheilac
Here's one of ade_mcfade's 'shot to death' locations. See here. Sorry, I can't help it, it's on my doorstep. Hopefully this one satisfies Adrian's cravings for something different.

I saw and heard the rooks flying around the edge a few times and so waited for them to come into view again for this picture.

Anyway, everyone had a lovely morning; walkers, climbers, photographers and rooks.

Thay say patience is a virtue - you have been very virtuous here - that rook on the right makes all the difference - lovely image Sheila.

Thanks all.

Paul, this was the only shot I got of them, despite quite a long wait. I think the birds got fed up of the epz paparazzi lined up on the edge and the climbers and the walkers and their dogs.

Melanie, I'm up your way next week, maybe we can meet up somewhere.

Beautiful wispy lines in the mist and the rooks are a bonus - can almost hear them calling as they fly out over the trees.

Getting it right is another.
