Gorgeous capture, Dean...and many, many congratulations on your Second Place win with it a bit over a year ago - very well deserved indeed!! (It was featured on the Contest page, and I just HAD to comment!) :) #895463

Thanks so much, Carolyn. I sure didn't expect to see comments on this one. It is my favorite photo of all the ones I've taken. It also won AOL's Photo of the Week in July and will compete for AOL's Photo of the Year in January. Thanks again for your comments. #898111

Hi again, Dean - thank you for the feedback! I can see why this is firmly a favourite photograph of yours! How DID you manage to get those seagulls to fly in just the right place for you? - LOL!! Just 'lucky', huh?! Congratulations on your weekly win with it back in July, in the AOL Photo of the Week... My husband Phil likes the image very much too, Dean, and we both wish you ALL the best for AOL's Photo of the Year contest in January... 'Happy snapping'! :) #900211
