I should say first that I find seagulls very entertaining, and love to take pictures of them. So when my dad decided to pack up an uneaten biscuit from breakfast to feed them, I was very excited. (On a side note, the restaurant where we ate is excellent except for the biscuits. But you know how some restaurants have this sort of bread-y item that looks like a biscuit, but the texture is all wrong? That was what we wanted to feed to the seagulls!). I couldn't see what was was going on in the viewfinder very well because of the glare from the sun, so I had to point, click, and hope for the best. These are my favorites from the seagull shots. The last one was taken around the time I thought I'd better run for cover.
Also, a few other shots:
|Clouds over the water|
|A night heron! Due to their tendency to appear at night, this is the best picture I've ever gotten of one.|
|I saw a few washed up jellyfish this year. It seems to vary a lot.|
|Impressive barnacles on driftwood.|
|Driftwood festooned with shells.|
|I think this was supposed to be a heart in my latte foam, but the overall effect seems quite different...|
