photoblog image Fishing Gull #2

Fishing Gull #2

The same seagull as yesterday, watching for fish. This picture shows it a little closer to the shore and gives some idea of how rough the sea was.

..........

A week or so of bird images.
The first time I've had a 'theme' but I've quite a few pictures I'd like to share and see what you think, and what might be done to improve them 'for next time'.

This picture was taken with a Dimage Z5.

I'm sorry about the anti-spam code. I edited my profile and the code turned itself on, I can't find any way of turning it off.

I so much love rough and tempestuous seas, Ellie, and so does this gull. I think we must be soulmates, the gull and I. Another marvelous capture.
Such a beautiful photo of something I certainly don't get a chance to see very often.
Really nice shot Ellie. I like the atmosphere, the cold colors...

He (she?) is quite intent on capturing his next meal! The sea seems so uninviting, not making it easy for the gull. Very nice capture!
Almost looks like the gull is going to surf that breaker. Great timing El and nicley captured. Sunday morning I had a very strange encounter, an Albatros flew by my back window. I always thought they didn't come in land, I was not drunk and I had my glasses on, they are not the kind of bird that you can mistake so I'm over the moon !

Like the composition. Water looks as if it running over a weir wall.

Strange thing yesterday evening, completed a anti-spam wrongly and it was still accepted!
Great capture and composition
Nice cold color as well smile

Hi Ellie. Nice seagull...stupendous seascape! Water is like thickened cream.
This what I call a money picture..
what a capture!!
Wow, this one is even better than yesterday's. smile
Ah, who could have such easy, cheep access to seafood... great shot; it shows the waves size, texture and energy very well.

I prefer this to yesterdays, nice shot.
The rough swells are much better seen by photo than in person! Nice capture of the ocean's color and mood. The bird looks very close to the surface. The clarity of the composition is very good.
Looking for titbits, nicely done again Ellie smile
Very good capture of the flight of the gull!

Aawww nice. I like this one Ellie. What a great catch... those are definitely turbulent waters.
