That’s a cool shot. Animals love to pose for you, don’t they? 🙂
How did you prevent the sun flare in the photo? Or, did you edit it out?
Thanks – I do like taking photos of critters and they seem to do interesting things around me sometimes. The only thing I did to that picture was cropping. I think I didn’t get flare because I was shooting directly at the sun (not recommended) and I had a circular polarizer filter on the lens.
I love how the sun shining through the feathers creates an outline around the bird.
This is a great image. I like how the sun outlines the seagull. Worth a place on the wall
This is one of my favorite shots.
Not an easy exposure,
Not easy chasing a bird.
But you did it in a great way.
This is such a beautiful shot. Love the composition.
Love the light, and the perfect sharpness of the bird’s body.
Thanks. I was originally trying to shoot some ducks on the water and this guy started flying circles around me. It took me a few minutes, and getting a bit dizzy from turning to follow him, but I finally got the shot. 🙂
Wow, thats really a great capture! I like the easiness, perfect exposure!
I love this shot. I wish I could fly!
What a shot! Glad you shared!
This photo is amazing,it’s exactly that, you wish you could fly. I arrived on your blog looking for a picture of a seagull in the sun and your photo got me from the very beginning.I chose it for a post on one of my blogs, I linked to it as the source of photo, it will show up in a few days as it is scheduled. But this is how I discovered your blog , glad I did 😉
Thanks, and welcome! I wish I could say that I planned that shot. I was shooting some gulls further out on the water, and this one flew by a few feet over my head. I fired off a few frames and hoped for the best.
