A Winter’s Flight

Cat Burton – A Winter’s Flight

A Winter’s Flight is a fantasy composite made of two photographs. I wanted to add to the story of the snowy day near Kingussie in Scotland by adding the bird in post production. While many people believe the “dot” texture in the sky was added in photoshop, this is actually the snow falling in the scene as I hiked up a hill in knee-deep snow. I photographed the scene with a telephoto lens so that I could pick out the one tree top that poked above the rest and framed the story around that.
