UK photographer Gideon Knight won the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year award for his photo titled 'The Moon, The Crow'. A crow in a tree in a park: a common enough scene. It was one that Gideon had seen many times near his home in London’s Valentines Park, which he visits regularly to take photographs. But as the blue light of dusk crept in, the full moon rose, the scene transformed. The spindly twigs of the sycamore tree silhouetted against the sky ‘made it feel almost supernatural, like something out of a fairy tale, ’ says Gideon. Positioning himself on a slope opposite, he tried to capture the perfect composition. But the crow kept moving along the branch, turning its head away, and so getting a silhouette of it with the moon in the frame meant Gideon had to keep moving, too. Then, just as the light was about to fade beyond the point that photography was possible, his wish came true, and an ordinary London scene turned into something magical. Gideon's equipment includes: Canon EOS 7D Mark I + 400mm f5.6 lens, 1/250 sec at f6.3 , ISO 500. - © Gideon Knight Wildlife Photographer of the Year - Wednesday 19th October 2016 (1 Picture)
