Autumn provides so many opportunities to make otherwise standard images a bit more dynamic. The light is much gentler at this time of year and normally featureless backgrounds are given a real boost. This Kingfisher obliged over a stream backlit by trees changing colour.
The low light also helps to shoot birds that are normally quite tricky as they hunt against the sky. The Kestrel kept me entertained for several minutes although the pipits and wagtails I was trying to capture didn’t seem too pleased.
