Update: ‘Through the frosted glass…'

Peregrine Falcon at Night

By a large margin, the worst quality photograph I have ever produced, but with absolutely the best feeling – with a heart pounding in my chest I trusted the Peregrine to stay and my Canon EOS 6D / EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens to deliver (at f/1.8 and ISO 12800 - single AF-Point).

This was indeed the closest I’ve ever been, albeit at night.

I moved at less than a snail's space in close to absolute darkness to get a bit more than just the normal nightly glimpse of my neighbour's silhouette outside the bathroom window high above the Milnerton night sky.

He controls my nights: no lights - loadshedding or no loadshedding. I'm getting used to living in darkness.

There is nothing I want to do to disturb his majestic presence...
