Heron Standing Tall And Proud

Heron Standing Tall And Proud. My Sunday Photo. Not so silent Sunday.

Hello friends. Happy Sunday. So how are you today? We have been busy, busy here, how about you?

My Silent or not-so-silent Sunday photo was taken in Nottingham last week.

Note From The Editor: This post content has been updated and modernised after it was first published in January 2012. Because of no content and fuzzy photos!

Heron Standing Tall And Proud

Heron Standing Tall And Proud:

Heron Standing Tall And Proud.

In the tranquil settings of Nottingham Canal, there stood a heron, elegant and tall, its long neck gracefully arching towards the other side of the water.

It was a sight to be seen. This heron, stood there tall and proud, not moving at all. The first thing I thought was, is it real?

We walked down the canal, then back 20 minutes later. Still not moving at all.

When I got home my live photos showed the heron moving his beak once in a while to prove he was real.

As the heron patiently waits, so too must we learn the art of patience in our journey– Unknown.

This time it was not real!

This sculpture of a heron was created by recycling waste from Raleigh cycles and trash gathered from the canal. How cool!

I love to see upcycling projects.

The artwork completes the transformation of a “neglected” urban area in Nottingham’s centre beside the canal.

In the dance of life, be as graceful as the heron, moving with effortless elegance- Unknown.

The bike pieces came from Raleigh’s Eastwood manufacturing skips, while other junk, such a shopping trolley, beer barrel hoops and a piece of an old lawnmower, were pulled out of canals.

    Herons are great to photograph. I see some everyday on my walk – and am amazed at how they stand still for hours. Or so it seems.

    They are just so stately, aren't they?We have Sandhill Cranes here too – – – which are their "cousins" I believe, but the Great Blue, though slightly smaller than old Sandy, is much more stately.
