Simple image.  Fence post with a back drop of a Welsh hillside dropping away from the distance.  (Plynlimon Range/Cambrian range near Rhyader).  

techs were Nikon 300 F2.8 at F4.  1/500.  Gitzo 1548 and Wimberley Gymbal.  

Such beautiful Owls.  

Please feel free to view uncompressed and thank you for looking.  Be safe.

The owl, the perch, and the background are all perfectly in balance and captured beautifully Dave. Excellent work and TFS.

This is really nice. I am not normally a fan of man made stuff in a shot but that mossy and weathered fence post looks great. Owl is beautiful and I love the background. Excellent image!
