An optimist

A single lapwing returned to its breeding grounds ahead of the others to claim a good territory but a cold snap must have forced it to turn back south quite soon. Even a thin cover of ice stops it from reaching its sustenance.

I like so much the combination of blue colours, composition and simplicity. Great !

Thanks a lot, all of you! Well, I usually don't play with colors this much but the scenery out there was so beautiful I couldn't resist adding accents of cobalt blue and violet in the shadows.
