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.

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

Very good timing, John, the light on the gulls and wave highlights what this image is about.
