Grey Partridge in snow and Golden Eagle study




At last i'm able to post images of my two latest projects.i sketched out the images a while ago but life got in the way a little and progress was very slow.however whilst there isn't a great deal to be seen at the moment ive been busy layering away on my backgrounds.i think the partridge layering is about complete and i'm ready to start on the background proper,the eagle's background needs a little more yet.the partridge image is going to be set in snow as i want the complex plumage to show up well,they're such lovely little birds and these days i find it increasingly difficult to find the proper english partridge in my neck of the woods.I'd love to be able to say that i'd photographed the golden eagle in the wild but my image is based on a falconers bird that i met at the hampshire county show,ive only ever glimpsed golden eagles in the wild around the west coast of the scottish highlands.
