Black-shouldered Kite: On a Lowering Sky

Black-shouldered Kite Elanus axillaris

+=============================+

Call it "Lockdown Fever" i was about to hit the Delete key on this badly underexposed shot. (My fault, I didn't reset from a previous well lit series.)

 

When I thought the sky patterning looked so ominous.

As you may know, I spend little time on post process.

So, a quick trip through a few ToneCurve masked layers and here it is.

NB

Lowering has a wonderful etymological background.

Even the good bard used it.

The cloudes that lowrd vpon our house” (Shakespeare’s Richard III)
