A reworked image today ......Local Knowledge counts a lot when it could mean your life depends on it, these gulls just sat there as waves big as the light house crashed over it, just missing them each and every time, trust is one thing taking chances another.

A dramatic capture, nicely timed.
Best to keep away from water, John, it can be very dangerous indeed. Stick to beer or red wine Smile

Looks as if they'd be slept away any moment, and reminds me of a TV prog. we watched last night where penguins attempting to reach shore were repeatedly washed back into the seas by huge waves.
But as you say, the gulls are pretty wise and know what they can chance and what they can't.
A superb image, John, showing the power of the seas, and looking good in this B and W presentation.
Ronnie.

The light - catching the wave and the gulls. That's rather special, it creates a relationship.

Good job I didn't go fishing lol. Love this as you as a viewer are anticipating the wave coming in. This shot for me is a winner just cause of the story in this picture one of the best action captures i have seen for a whilst for me. well done.
