This photo has so many elements, the reflection, the water ripple, and water. Great shot.

I think we have this kind of sea gull here, they are very aggressive.

Oh thank heavens for finding your blogspot! These are amazing shots. I take photgraphs, bt have no real idea what I'm doing. Just try to capture what I see. I just love, love , love these picures. But then I love birds too. Can't wait to get stuck into the rest of your blogs.

We all feel like this (more often than we care to admit to, I suspect)

Dagrun said...

Hihihi... du fikk meg til å smile her jeg sitter. Ikke lett å være tung i bakenden. Det er vel der vi alle ender etter noen uker, hehe.

Ha ei strålende helg, Rune!
