May you stretch your own wings and have only happy landings in the new year.

A great moment you caught here.

All the best in the New Year.

Like this wonderful gull, I'm flying back ...to blogging after having lost my internet connexion during three days..
That's why i'm a little late to wish you and your family a HAPPY NEW YEAR!I hope you had a good celebration!

Wow - I have tried and failed over and over again to capture a gull in flight, so congratulations to you.

Reader Wil said...

Great to see a bird in action! This is something I cannot achieve: moving objects are literally beyond my range.
BTW I put up my Bench(es) of the Week. These photos were taken in a warm Australia, in contrast to the snow benches of last week.

Carver said...

I love this shot. It looks like the gull is focused on something enticing below. Happy New Year to you and yours.

John said...

Kavalkaden i posten under her var meget flott. Det lignet veldig på en LR generert side :)

Alt som har gått opp skal ned sies det :) Godt fanget! Ha en fin søndagskveld.

imac said...

Looks like a great landing there Rune, also - so glad you captured the blue Moon too.
It was too cloudy for me, so i had too many drinks haha.

michael bird said...

A beauty, Rune. Looking to emulate your success with the water birds.

Shannara said...

Härligt fångad Pippi. =)

God Fortsättning!

Carolyn Ford said...

That is beautiful. The light is perfect and the outstretched wings are fabulous on this bird. And, you were able to quickly capture this bird with amazing composition! This is a beauty!

VALKYRIEN said...

Vakkert fanget Rune! Og så likte jeg din blå måne under her, den er flott!

Ønsker deg et riktig godt nyttår, og takk for alle dine fine kommentarer i det gamle året. De varmer! :)

Spiderdama said...

Veldig flott og vakkert bilde!:-)
Ønsker deg et Godt Nytt År!

Irene said...

Flott fanget .... Godt Nytt År!

Dagrun said...

Den var i svevet og going down ja. Flott fanget. Tror jeg må hive meg på noen fuglebilder jeg også. Aldri prøvd... eneste jeg ser er egentlig kråkene i treet utenfor kjøkkenet her, og de er ikke veldig sjarmerende.

Regina said...

Beautiful!

mrsnesbitt said...

Wonderfully captured!
Happy New Year to you & yours from me and mine.
Talking about a visit to Legoland...a possible meeting with my Norweigan blogging friends could just happen. Possibly summer 2010!

Dina ... UK said...

Ultimate freedom to fly away..
Beautiful image.
Hope you have a Happy New Year.

Petunia said...

Det er litt luftballett det der!!!

Hans HB said...

Godt fanget det der. Er det en hettemåke i vinterdrakt mon tro??

Ida said...

Elegant landing.
Ikke noe magaplask der, nei... ;)

Morten Pedersen said...

Jeg håper du holder deg oppe.

AKO said...

Captured at exactly the right moment with both movement and stillness/sharpness in the same picture!
