On the Wind...

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload of my Squirrel.

Todays image was captured yesterday during a brief and blustery outing to the beach.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me well I shall just take the day as it comes.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

A short extract from 'Sea Fever' for you this morning Nathan, which goes well with your captivating image. Have a good day - John. Smile

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

An evocative title and image Nathan, you have controlled the tricky light very well to give the impression of turbulent motion. Great stuff.

Sea gull you fly across the horizon, into the misty morning sun
no one asks you where you are going
nobody knows where your from................

Unfortunately not my words but so apt for this fantastic photo.

Well done Nathan.

A great active capture with good shadow against a lovely reflection. Well done Nathan.

Beautiful! I would love to have the opportunity to take photos near the ocean, but the prairie doesn't allow me to.
Quite a surf. Great quality of light. Love the bird, makes the whole thing work, Nathan.
