    I was walking the urban environment around Waterloo/Regent Road, in December, looking for interesting subjects to make an image, As it was late in the year I knew the sunrise would be late and stay low in the sky and as I'd previously photographed Tyle Street I thought this would be an apt location, Adopting a low viewpoint proved to be correct as the sun washed the setts in it's golden glow.

    The weather report had indicated a clear morning. Unfortunately when I arrived at Egremont Promenade the conditions didn't look promising, so I decided to make some built architecture images around Marine Point, New Brighton. Upon return to where I'd parked the clouds were clearing over Liverpool. In my initial images the sun was blowing out the highlights but I could see the clouds were shifting as the sun rose. Eventually, after waiting, my previsualition of the scene appeared, all I had to do

    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000.
