Barn Owl - Greetings Card - Image © Guy Edwardes
"Overcast lighting can present problems for photographers, but can sometimes work to your advantage. This barn owl was photographed on a very windy and overcast day. With my camera mounted on a sturdy tripod I closed the lens aperture down to f32 to achieve an exposure time of one second. During the exposure the wild flowers were blowing around whilst the owl remained motionless on the gatepost."
