Sun & Bird 01 Mar 2009_08

A pigeon in a tree with the sun behind,

 

The sun was struggling to shine though thinning cloud and due to the it being mid morning the original photograph was virtually monochrome. I've given this a sunset feel by blending an orange/yellow gradient map layer.

 

Pigeons and doves constitute the family Columbidae, which include some 300 species of birds. They are stout-bodied birds with short necks and short slender bills. The species commonly referred to just as the "pigeon" is the feral Rock Pigeon, common in many cities.
