Clay pigeons in flight

‘Pigeons in Fliiiiiight!’ in the words of the multi-talented John Shuttleworth. This is a very simple and effective technique, with a bit of Photoshop jiggery pokery. One has to ensure that once one has photographed one’s birds, that the sky is adjusted to as near to white as possible. Then the image is inverted, which gives the odd appearance of birds apparently made of stone.
This was a last minute shot one day as I was leaving Brompton Cemetery. At the Fulham end one can often see enormous flocks of pigeons flying overhead, which can be both exciting and dangerous if you’re caught underneath.
