moments in focus…

seagulls in flight

There seems to be something so tranquil about this image.  The birds completing their morning routine and then quietly flying away to their next stop.  Even though this photo does feel peaceful to me, the ever looming presence of oil lurks on the horizon.

  2. The mood in this capture is just superb and the oil rig looming the distance puts a new perspective on the tranquillity of the gulf.

  3. Looks wonderful.. .So many times I’ve tried capturing gulls in flight, and so many times I’ve failed… I agree with you that this is real tranquil…

  4. thank you all for your nice comments. This was just one of those lucky shots, in the right place at the right time.
    Birds are always on the move, it seemed that every time I was getting close enough for a nice shot, they would fly away!
