"Seagul in Flight"


Springfield, US
          

I had gone to the beach to shoot the sunrise. After that I walked along the beach looking for targets of opportunity. When I saw this fellow, I just whipped the camera up and shot him. My wife thinks the pic would be better if the ocean were either a total blur or in sharp focus. I kinda like it the way it is.

Nice capture. Hovering sea-birds like gulls and terns, and sometimes hawks and falcons, are fun to watch. They seek rising air streams and can stay put for minutes.

I like the way you captured the gull sharp and the waves are still recognizable. They give context, meaning location and wind.

In a perfect world I think the gull could be entirely above the horizon, but we don't live in a perfect world.

Regards, Antero

You captured the seagull in a very fine light. A very nice photo.

Nice shot, I kinda like the waves level of blur. This is a Ring-billed Gull.
