Oh dear, just can't stay in when weather is fine. Went down to the Basin just outside Montrose. This is a nature reserve for a large variety of birds. Actually was going looking for waxwings as thought there may be some there. Just driving along and spotted a whole flock of them in trees at the side of the road. Could barely park the car for excitement! Anyway they were up in the trees so all shots are looking upwards.
Have only cropped, sharpened and changed the white balance setting. The sky really was that colour. Have also now discovered how to change the background colour of the montage. Always learning Wink Thanks for C&Cs on last upload.
