Walking the Outer Suburbs, just as Our Star starts to rise.  Windows reflect the light, bands of colour fill the sky – and the Jackdaws? >>> they’re on the chimney top at far right.  They’re crows, the smallest of our crows, and they love chimneys;  they are starting to move as the light brightens, bustling on the chimney tops and filling the air with their  sharp calls – “tjack-daw!

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window – certainly recommended.

Technique: TG-5 at 49mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; spot metering; Lightroom, starting at the Camera Portrait profile; south Bristol; 1 Dec 2020.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.


  1. Nicely seen and beautifully composed 🙂

    Love the bands of colour in the sky, and the symmetry, but the best bit is the sky reflecting in the windows!


  3. Love it Adrian. Both the composition and lighting.


  4. You always make me look for the birds. 😉 It’s like a game.
    Great shot, bud. The colors are amazing. And the lines of the roofs and the lights! Very enjoyable.


  5. Nice shot, loads of detail still from the small sensor

      Thank you! Yes, the 6.17×4.55mm sensor in the TG-5 does very well for many things; this is an excellent little camera to stick in my pocket when I’m out walking, and when vast amounts of depth of field are good/ok. 🙂

  6. Fine shot! Cheers for the weekend, Adrian!


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
