Hoar Frost Images, with Birds Of Prey
13th December 2012
Given the current freezing weather, it seems appropriate to show a couple of snaps taken during a hoar frost. These were done at Vince Jones' Barn Owl Centre in Gloucestershire, on a day-on-the-beach with Danny Green. I've just got around to processing them.

As usual, I prefer an environmental shot and the hoar frost lent itself to this beautifully. The star was Leyton the Buzzard who would fly to his handler skimming just over the foliage. My favourite is the shot where his wings dip below the frost.

The colour of the Barn Owl also lends itself to its surroundings, and I reckon is the right size in the picture. This image looks good on any wall and is best seen at around 36 inch longest size; subtle sales pitch over........
