There are a lot of Heron's nests in the trees Frank...
wonderful silhouettes on gold of both the trees and the gull in flight....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter, this is one of,if not the largest Heron nesting sites in the North West, usually about sixteen nests up there every year.
I love the choice for sepia
Frank L Croston.: Glad you like it,Chantal.

This is a fine composition Frank, almost b&w but with a slight touch of something else
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris. Now if I can just remember what it was....smile
Awesome shot of the snoopy gull who would love to find an egg for his breakfast.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary, I'm sure he'd like to...
Altogether a very fine shot Frank, I like the overall tone and the silhouette style.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian. I hoped when I took it that it would work this way.

"Clear off!" I like the strong silhouette here that the colour in the sky.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, I presume you mean the Gull...? smile
I like the sepia treatment...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Larry, it seemed to suit it.
Always on the look out for an untended egg!
Frank L Croston.: Or anything it seems, Tom.
Nice bit of toning Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill.
This is beautiful, Frank! I love that slight pink tone in the sky!
Frank L Croston.: I had to look for the pink,but yes, there it is, thanks, Elizabeth.
Very good Dude.

You have demonstrated to me that trees do not need leaf or bloom adornments to be objects of beauty, Frank.
