...and then there was light

The name Black-headed gull (Larus ridibundus) would expect you to believe they have black heads, which is actually true in summer. This is their winter plumage though.

 

I do like this shot. Maybe it's because the long dark and grey winter kills every creativity and it's such a relief when the sunbeams break through the clouded skies. Suddenly when you just start to doubt about your passion for photography, you realize it's all about light. I grabbed my camera and for the first time - after I returned from my holiday - I felt the blood streaming in my vains again... Can't wait for spring!
