Gull on the Wing

Uploaded: March 11, 2004


A shot taken a couple of weeks ago on a spring-like afternoon on the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay in Havre de Grace, Maryland. The gull was gliding along as if flying were the easiest and most common thing in the world (ah, to fly!). Natural light, sports setting, 100mm macro lens

Thanks, Gunther. Speaking of clarity, I don't think I even come close that what you achieve. Your models are so clearly defined and photographed, it looks like you could cut paper with them. Thanks again. Jay
