Rooster

Rooster. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

For this week’s throwback I’m sharing one last photo from the walk in Wied Qirda and Wied Ħanżir that I did last winter. I took this when I got out of the valleys, as I was walking past one of the farms in the area. One could hear the roosters from quite a distance, of course, but it was quite a surprise to see the fowl checking me out from atop the rubble wall. I already had the camera set up with the macro lens, so it was fairly easy to point it in the right direction and record this moment. Processing it was a little trickier, due to the strong contrast; I was rather surprised at the iridescent colours on the wings and tail, and did my best to stay faithful to nature while still getting them to show up.
