A woodpigeon is pictured sat on a tall, wooden fence, wrapped in flowering white roses, above a leafy suburban garden at the end of another June day. We see its side profile as it faces to the right, the setting sun behind it; there is not a cloud to be seen, and the soft blue of the sky is tinged with the amber of the setting sun.
A lone woodpigeon perches on a garden fence as the sun sets behind him; quietly, he wonders about the truth of the world.
