Aerial Freedom

By tonymarq
Hi everyone, finally home after a long week! hope all are doing well plus enjoying the weekend! Finally back home and checking into the sight before lights out! This i recently posted in B&W and figured i liked it in color as well. gave it a little crop and played with the color. Like to photgraph gulls as the tend to float in the air and give you a chance to focus, not a very shy species when it comes to birds and they give me a chance with the camera for some aerial type captures! will be checking in after some shut eye!

thanks for all the recent comments which are trully appreciated!!

good night and stay well!

I liked the B & W version Tony - I think this coloured version just about tops that. Nice one.

Hi Tony,
It looks so different in colour.
I love how you have captured him soaring on the thermal & a wonderful blurred background.
Lovely colours.

Hi Tony,

Sorry I didn't reply to your last comment on my butterfly pic, I was busy preparing for my trip to South Africa, where I am now. Will be emigrating here in the new year, with a bit of luck.

This is a very good shot, very well presented with the frame and the title. Well done. Hope you enjoyed your shuteye!

You are one of the people on my "favorite" list. Forgive me if I do not make a comment every time I vote on your photos. I am so busy with the flying lately that I just do not have the time to make a sensible comment. This does not mean that I just "click" to give you a vote. Now and then I may surprise you with a written contribution!! Regards.
