Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #72–Waiting

One of our little trips out, locally, was to Northward Hill Nature Reserve near Higham in Kent.  And with that trip came a lot of waiting, waiting for the birds to land just in front of the hide.  This little egret above did a full photoshoot for us.

I wanted to do this image in black and … Continue reading Rework of a Little Egret

Working on old images and using Twitter
