Thank you to everyone, for all the kind comments on my extended Bird series. :)

Over the next few days, the theme is time and light, all taken from my archives, at different times of the day and in different light. I hope you like them as some of them are a bit different to what I usually post :)

This was taken in Oct 2006, I love the way the sun is shining through the yellowing leaves.

Nice shot Mary, have you tried a really tight crop on this one so you just get the people walking into the nicely lit leaves in the background, could be interesting and would get rid of some of the darker surroundings?
