The Lark Ascends...

...or more likely rook, or crow...
Had a job getting the auto focus to bite, even after setting the camera to infinity (?) but got there in the end.

Nice, I'm sure RV Williams was inspired by this.

Hi Don!
It's been a while...
Yes, doubtlessly! ;)
On further research I find that Mr Williams was inspired by George Meredith's poem which goes like this:

He rises and begins to round,
He drops the silver chain of sound,
Of many links without a break,
In chirrup, whistle, slur and shake.
For singing till his heaven fills,
‘Tis love of earth that he instils,
And ever winging up and up,
Our valley is his golden cup
And he the wine which overflows
to lift us with him as he goes.
Till lost on his aerial rings
In light, and then the fancy sings.


NICE!
