Catching some Rays

By jasonrwl
Thank you to everyone for your C&C's on yesterday's image from Steel Rigg and especially to Kate (IrishKate) for her valued UA.

Today's offering is a Heron catching the last of the evening sunlight next to the Lindisfarne causeway. It was very skittish so I used the car as a hide and took this through the window just using a monopod to steady the camera.

Anyway, thanks for looking

The light on the heron is just lovely.
Between you and the new camera and especially with time on your hands,
you've been producing some great work.

lovely shot Jason, i like the light captured on its beak/bill? Blush i used a rolled up scarve for a bean bag on my last birdy pic, same as you from the hide/car Smile

btw, hampton court palace was the place, grounds had an entry fee so the shot did cost, but its what i went for so worth while.

The light was in your favor-- this rimlight outlines the bird giving the viewer complete separation from the bg-- A good one!
