Heron in the Blue Hour
From an ongoing project using Trent Building at Nottingham University as a backdrop to diverse interesting foregrounds.
Inspired by Hokusai's majestic "100 Views of Mount Fuji".
I have been working on this - on and off - for over five years now, but this blue hour encounter with a juvenile heron remains the only time I have found them on this parapet. This bird had taken up an irresistible position and was happy to let me take shots close up and from below. Extraordinary.
