Soaring into the blue

By louisemorrisonsty
Hey Folks. Sorry for not being on the site for a long time. I've not had the time recently.

A big thank you to all that have left votes and comments on my previous uploads. It means a lot. Smile

This photo was taken about a week ago at the beach. Port of Ness beach on the Isle of Lewis has a lot of seagulls nesting on the cliffs and you can get up close to them.

This is my first time attempting bird photography so I just had the camera on the programme function. Just cropping on photoshop no other tweaks.

Thank you for looking and as usual all comments welcomed. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Cheers Lou

Well done Louise, not the easiest of shots when they're inflight but you've done well here.

A fine capture, Louise. You have stopped it in flight and rendered it sharply.
