Barn Owl

I took an hour out as dusk approached to see if I could capture a shot of a Barn Owl. This one was hunting in salt marshes just in from the North Norfolk coast but stubbornly refused to come into range. There was no chance of catching any detail – including the freshly snatched vole between its talons – but I took the shot in dwindling light simply because I liked the gentle colours of an evening drawing in.

  2. It is beautiful without any finer detail, Tim; the colouring is superb.
