So beautiful and unique...
This is marvelous; beautiful!
Everything about this capture is perfect: the fantastical shapes of the trees in the foreground and background, the stoic elegance of the heron, even the rain! Incontestably a shot worth braving the elements for!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful moment. Also, I'm impressed you went out in the rain to take the photo.
You're welcome. Concerning the rain, it started out cloudy and then I was surprised by the rain inside the park. Anyway this kind of weather gives the picture a more dramatic atmosphere so I kept shooting. I was quite happy to have gotten such a weather - at least after 3 days after my visit there, when my camera started finally to work again properly...
