Sunshine is scarce these days. But when the sun peeps through the clouds the winter light is so beautiful. I am very pleased that my first 2012 upload is a hunting Hen Harrier (Circus cyaneus/Blauwe Kiekendief). One intention already has come true. I wish you all the best for 2012, good health, lots of happiness, and amazing light.
