Foto Finish--Things That Fly

If you're looking for my giveaway, click here.

This week's Foto Finish theme is:  "Things that Fly"

Here's my entry:


I've always loved this image of a soaring seagull taken at sunset in Florence, Oregon, one summer.  The seagulls seem to fly so effortlessly, and this image instills a feeling of calm when I see it.  There's a short window of time at sunset when the sky turns this surreal color.  I'm always glad when I'm paying attention and I can catch my subjects bathed in orange gold.

I think I'll stick with this "things that" theme for a few weeks.  Next week's Foto Finish theme will be:

Things that are Hot

I too had chosen an image of a seagull. I have fun snapping shots of these birds when we are out fishing.
