No. 64, 23rd January: Heron



I came across this heron sat by the river on my walk this morning. There was a very conveniently placed bramble bush on my side of the river that I could hide behind and shoot through to create the shapes and textures in the foreground. I like the way the heron appears as a beacon of brightness among the shadows.
