What a difference a day makes

Yesterday here in North Norfolk it was grey and gloomy. Today, the light was almost Mediterranean in its brilliant blue clarity, allowing for a really nice feel to these two studies.

  1. It might be a trick of the light but it looks to me that the bird is casting a shadow on the background...

    1. It is an interesting effect, isn't it. It's actually distant foliage, but they way it seems to echo the tit's shape as a shadow is kind of spooky.
