A couple of days ago I saw a Heron in the River Nairn, the first one I've seen down there. I must go to the river more often instead of the beach! It is a gorgeous bird to watch, so calm and beautifully still in the water.
Unusually, for me anyway, I hadn't taken my Olympus Pen out with me as thought I wouldn't need it this time (I take it every time I go out on a walk!). So when I went passed a gap in houses and saw the Heron in the river I went down for a closer look. I was quite taken with it.
I soon realised I needed to go back home to grab the Pen! Luckily I was only 2 minutes away. Eager to take a few photographs, I snapped away. The light was perfect.
I got talking to a dog walker who asked if I had got some good shots, which I said I think I had but wished I'd had a bigger lens to get a bit closer and get more detail. Oh well, it is also good to have a lot of the natural surroundings in the image too!
I knew this would be inspiration to make a card. So the next day I made a sketch (I usually use a book for reference).
I set about picking out papers I thought would work. I still get an element of surprise and joy when a card comes together and can't wait to cut it out and finish it! This is how it turned out.
