Heron Flying At Sunset

Best on black. I took this on the night I went out and ran into fog where I wanted to shoot. We rushed into our car and ran up the dunes, puff puff, hoping to catch the sun before it went into the ocean...no luck but I did some long exposures of the moments afterwards and then took it home to give it a seeing to...since there was no interesting foreground object. I added the heron from a recent heron in flight shot I had and added some textures to help it blend in. I like how it turned out. Thanks to the inspiration of Cheryl Medow's wonderful work.
Thanks for your visits, comments, suggestions, favs

@darylo I can't even run up a bill, let alone a hill.

@golftragic @darylo lol! I was impressed too though it was a slow run! I have Black Pearl to thank since she demands sweetly of course, a good hike everyday preferably off leash and we’ve been taking at least one and maybe two hikes a week that go over high dunes. She LOVES running up and down and around them chasing shadows of dragonflies or seagulls.

Even if I were fit enough, which I'm not, my metal knees and a couple of other undercarriage problems would slow me down to a very slow climb.
