It may just have stopped raining but the clouds linger. I walked up the hill yesterday and it was so dark overhead I didn’t even bother to take out my camera. The road is quite narrow, banked on each side and with plenty of vegetation so I was on a loser from the start. I did see Black-faced bunting which was a reasonable bird for the patch.
I feel in a Black and White mood today. After experimenting with Dragan effects yesterday I have been introduced to the “Dave Hill” effect. The only Dave Hill I knew before then was the guitarist with Slade (showing my age). But just to prove my first love is birds, here is a shot from January this year, a gull at Nam Sang Wai with a small supporting cast.
Virtually all bird shots nowadays are in colour but think monochrome still has something to offer. I hope you agree. On a cloudy day like today it doesn’t make much difference!
