Sea gulls on the Strait

Today was the day to be at the Dungeness Spit! As you have probably found out, I love the water and I like to go there any time I can get away - whether it is Port Williams, the Spit, the west coast beaches or Long Beach, Wa - they are all wonderful places to walk, relax and refresh the body, soul and spirit

I took my camera and just kept shooting away :)

I am not a sea gull fan by any means and I'm not sure what kind of gull this is - my bird book and photos don't match! Even though I don't care for the bird, that was the bird on site today, and I was delighted to practice getting some 'flight' photos. This is a scary venture, however, because it is making me increasingly unsatisfied with my little camera ! ! ! But, OH THE THRILL of catching a bird in flight! ! !

Don't sell yourself short, Diane. Those are very good photos with what I assume is a point-and-shoot! Keep up the good work.

You assume correctly :) thank you for the encouragement, Ivars!

Fantastic captures, Diane! Photographing an object in flight is extremely tricky! Your Morning Mountain views are gorgeous, too! Great captures!

Don't sell your talents, nor your point-and-shoot camera's potential short. It's a poor workman who blames his tools. Translate: it's not the camera, but the person behind it that makes the most difference. I really like the top picture of this set; there is something exciting about photographically catching a bird in flight.
