The Icelandic River runs through town and is at a lower elevation through most of the townsite. I found a place where I can walk and watch these gulls in the morning. This pair is almost always in the same spot. I've been trying different settings without blowing the whites totally out. It is challenging because I have to shoot upwards to where the gulls are sitting in the sun.
I'm pretty happy with the results of this one. Very little tweaking in Photoshop Elements was needed and there were no "blinkies" on my camera screen when I took the image. Best of all, I liked my histogram. Yay!
Here's the settings: Comments, suggested invited!

I'll be away all of Tuesday and probably on Wednesday. Until then, may your days be filled with joy and your May Day baskets be filled with wildflowers!
