I photographed this seagull working just offshore Miami's South Beach early one Sunday morning. Dawn's light came through heavy storm clouds blessing me with the conditions that led to a very productive morning. I used Apple's iPhoto to tweak and crop the image. Enjoy!

Loving that sky! A powerful backdrop for the gull. The clouds look so rough but the gull's flight looks so smooth! #887753
