Carrion Crow over our back garden, not long after dawn; 27 Nov 2011.

I very much like the limited palette of colours but – as is so often the case – I prefer this version to monochrome.  The crow – which looks for all the world like a Photoshop insert! – is purposely positioned away from any of the composition’s visual strong points, but with space ahead to fly into.  Actually quite a reasonably sized bird, it looks so small here against the vast sky and very solid looking clouds:  this is intentional.

There is another image in this series here in a recent post.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    That’s a wonderful composition. I love the cloud colours and the painterly feel to them.

    Love it. 🙂
    As I scrolled down the menacing sky gave way to the lighter weather and then the bird flew into the picture bringing hope of a better day.

      That’s a good interpretation, I like that. I guess we all hope for something better.

      Another thing here to me is that, however large, dark and menacing the clouds may be, that crow is sailing along, not at all intimidated, knowing that s/he can deal with it all. A
