Warm blue


Northern France, last spring. A Bluethroat sings from the top reaches of a bush on the edge of a marsh. I forgot that I had taken this photograph until looking through a whole raft of images today. Regardless of the distance of the bird, and its lack of detail, I was at once warmed by the visual, so thought I would share it.

Beautiful! Sometimes, just like the artist Chris Rose's paintings, it's nicer to have the bird as a small piece of the whole picture rather than just a great big specimen shot bang right in the middle....if that makes sense? I've yet to see a Bluethroat but live in hope every spring when I'm on the coast.

That makes total sense to me Gillian, sometimes less is more!
