CommentThe sunlight plays a massive part in this image. The direct sun provides the rim-lighting that separates the bird from the dark rising trees in the background, while the morning mist absorbs the sunlight to create a very subtle fill light. Finally, the frosty boardwalk creates a golden reflection, lighting up the underside of the swamphen.
