Landscapes and Wildlife near Glasgow
For a long time I have been trying to obtain a capture of this
elusive Heron. For once I was in the right place at the right time with
the right combination of camera and lens.Sightings of these birds are
rare in the Glasgow region. The existence of the species must indicate a
favourable environment for the birds to survive, including fish
This morning, on my walk around a local country park, I was fortunate to benefit from a favourable combination of light and visibility allied with a low probability sighting of a Heron(above)..
Generally speaking, Scotland offers an excellent canvas for photographers, including landscapes, seascapes and wildlife but the best shots require a combination of luck, serendipity and/or detailed planning factoring in weather conditions.
