Home :: Terns on the Grand Western Canal

Tern coming in to land

On yesterday’s canal photo walk, I snapped like crazy as several terns flew around us attempting to wrestle some bread from the ducks. Most of the shots were blurred, but there were a few good ones in there.

A little play with Photoshop Elements made this one full of blackcurranty goodness.

And although this one could have been sharper, I loved the shape of the wings. I played with the colours a little to give the canal a rather appealing bronze colour.
