Skywatch Friday - Gull

Images of summer continue. Until I lived in London I associated gulls with the beach. Now I include the river Thames. They seem to know exactly which tourists will have some lunch to share.
Don't forget to visit other skywatchers around the world.

The sky is beautiful. The bird looks like he is posing for you.
There are seagulls in Utah too. Not even close to the ocean. But I'd never get such a great shot.

Superb shot!

I've always liked the seagulls until last May one of them attempted to attack me to try to get some food I was eating. Vicious thing! All the best. Ciao. A.

Beautiful pic. I like the sky background very much. And I thought the bird looked at me and greeted me when I look at it lol.
Great shot!

Hi Mo,

That is an excellent shot!
I like gulls. I think they are fascinating - and scary at the same time. Because of their size.

Best regards
Asta

No not photoshopped. It is a a very wide F stop that makes the background go out of focus. I have made a slight adjustment to the brightness that's all.

Dan said...

Wonderful! The clouds in the background were perfectly out of focus:-) Nice shot!

There is something I really hate about seagulls, they must be the ugliest bird out there.
