Icarus

By Anna62
Many thanks to all who voted and commented on "Somewhere over the Rainbow"..it is greatly appreciated Smile

Todays image was taken at Manly Wharfside. There was a flock of seagulls nearby and one of them took flight - I was fortunate enough to snap it just in the position I wanted it to. Reminded me of the Greek Myth of Icarus..who flew close to the sun.......hence the title Smile

Very well captured sunset and with the bird so well placed allowing that clever title: lovely range of tones in the sky.

Great title Anna, and I so like the silhouettes of the trees and bird, such an eye catcher. Carole

the gull is spot on!
these silhouettes look almost unreal, like something made out of Lego

Worked brilliantly, and the positioning of the gull must have been painstaking, or one of those lucky moments. The setting sun on the horizon combined with the low pov make for an excellent shot. Nice one!
