The View

Cairngorms National Park, Scotland


I was sitting with this bird for quite sometime as it quietly sat on the boulder as if it was taking in the views but of course it gave him an excellent vantage point to see predators or other male birds coming into it’s territory.   I opted to capture the wider scene with the bird in the landscape and with carrying a zoom lens I am able to pull back without having to move and unnecessarily disturb the bird.
