Black Red

I managed to escape from the office at lunchtime and spent an hour or so photographing a very confiding Black Redstart at West Voe. The sky was dark grey, the light was awful and the bird was feeding in big clumps of brown and black kelp. Not ideal! But...with the help of some fill-flash, this setting actually helped to bring out both the subtle tones and feather detail of what could easily have been 'washed out' on a nice sunny day.
