    oh barb!! the silhouette of the bird and lighthouse against that beautiful sky and the glow of the sun is total perfection!! you clicked that shutter at the exact right time… this is totally fabulously fantastic shot!!! excellent!!

  • The luck of the Irish, I suppose! I wanted the gull to be a smidgen to the right but felt darn glad I got what I got! It was hard because he kept swirling around….thank you so much dear friend!

    This is absolutely stunning Barb! You timing was impecable here too! This is a classic beauty!!!

  • Thank you so much, Robin! Was certainly fun to pull it up on the computer and see the gull in focus…was a little worried about that because he kept swooping around! Thanks for the Favorite, my friend!
