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...

("Gavina" means "seagull" in Catalan)

    Really nice! I know it's hard to get the bird in focus when you've got such a complicated background...well done!

    Ahhh... serendipity with timing at it's best. The gulls adds a feeling of bouyancy not just for the bird in flight but for the viewer.

    Buenísimas las dos fotos, la gatuna también. Y complementarias.

    Es un gustazo echar un vistazo con calma a tu stream, así se explican muchas cosas (como lo de la cuadratura del círculo, por fin lo he entendido :D).

    Yo lo más que me he acercado a hacer algo así fue con esta bastante cutre:

    Vista de pájaro

    Enhorabuena maestros.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
