Odd one out.

The new weekly photo challenge is A Face in the Crowd.

I was considering a couple of photos before deciding to go a different way entirely.

A favourite.

Between film and digital I have photographed hundreds of species of birds but there’s something about the European Robin. Confiding and sometimes so tame you have to be careful not to step on them, some are real characters.

Beloved weekly photo challenge. The photo below is a film shot from the 1980s that I  came across in my slide files recently.

Silence at sunset.

Silence weekly photo challenge.

Little Quill Lake at sunset, Saskatchewan, Canada

At -40°C the only sound was an occasional Snow Bunting flying past me to roost in a reed bed and some creaks and groans from the ice.
