A perfect moment

    Newer Older

    Early morning at one of my favourite haunts (Highfields Park, Nottingham).

    This heron was unmissable, not moving a muscle in the still water.

    I have never taken a picture of a heron which was not completely aware of what I was doing, and this one was no exception. I moved around quietly and gently in order not to break the moment, trying out different angles to get the best combination of light and reflection.

    I have never found a similar combination of conditions in the six years since I took this.
