It was such a nice day yesterday that we decided to put down tools and go to Whitby.
I took this shot of the gulls flying around trying to get the chips that were being thrown over the edge of the pier.
I have put on a second version where the third gull has been removed, as no doubt some will not like the partial one in the corner.

As we had the day off yesterday I will have very little time for EPZ, and will only be able to click and run, sorry.

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great weekend.

I do like this shot. V1 for me as the 3rd gull adds to the action and feeling of movement. V2 is altogether too tidy.
