While on our way back from the bird hide at Coombe Abbey, we stopped for a while at the lake to take some shots of the Gulls flying around and soaring on the high winds. Most of my shots were just snaps really, but I wanted to capture the flight and different wing formations while in flight. As it was quite a bright day I was able to push the speed up.
After offloading my shots, although some of them were ok, they didn`t offer anything special. So I thought I would try and give this a more abstract feel to it. Thanks for looking.

I like it, though even the bird by itself would be great at a larger size.
