Over the shoulder

Some shots from the last few days on my travels trying to find a good bit of wood to make some shelves for a client. You wouldn't believe how hard is to source an original chunk of hardwood in the north east that has been seasoned but hasn't been planed to within an inch of its sap.

The search has nothing at all to do with black birds but by I've learnt the best way get some plumage detail in the picture is to creep up and take a glancing shot from behind preferrably when they're wet.

Looks like I'm on for a business / birding trip to North Yorkshire to fulfil my quest for timber.
