As The Crow Flies

As The Crow Flies

Inspired by the old saying 'as the crow flies' I decided to capture the rhythym of one particular individual over the limestone pavement of the Yorkshire Dales, at Lower Winskill.

This was the flight path of the first crow to appear in the wake of a summer thunderstorm and the raven was obviously unaware that it was expected to fly via the quickest route!

This set of images was taken during a period of about thirty seconds as the individual soared and wheeled around me, calling with his hoarse, echoing 'cronk'.

The images were used, amongst others, in a bespoke, one off concertina book called Raven which features the poem of the same name by Edgar Allen Poe. Several of the other shots can be viewed in the Journal here.
