La Gavina

Well, this one has made it to Explore Front Page too (Explore #6 on March 17, 2007). Thank you all!! ;)

If you like this shot, please consider also viewing some of my most interesting shots according to Flickr!

 

Yesterday I went to take shots around Girona with my friend Don_Gato. At a point, I told him it was difficult to catch some of the seagulls that live on the urban part of Onyar river, one of the most famous places in Girona. He just tried once and got a great shot! I just returned home and saw he already uploaded it on Flickr :) So, today morning, I've gone to the same place and took this one. I dedicate it to him ;)

 

Of course, the shot is REAL. The sun was just in front, quite up on the sky over the houses, and it gave to the young seagull a very special lighting...
