Soaring



While shooting this picture I noticed a man walking across
the gravel embankment of the river.....





...when suddenly numerous seagulls burst into the air...
and then I realized...

 
 


...how many, many birds had been sitting quietly...



 
 
..and now, disturbed, were soaring in circles above the river.

  3. Neil,
    I'm so glad I found your blog. Your photographs are beautiful. I love taking pictures of nature around my place, also. But so far, I have not been putting those on my blog. I will come back and enjoy your beautiful scenery.

    Blessings,

  9. The birds look like rocks without looking very closely in the first pictures. That probably woke you up when all those birds took flight! Great pictures!
