Gulls in Flight by George Cousins

There’s usually lots of gulls along the cliffs of southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I like to get them just floating along effortlessly.
In the distance, a ship moving up the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains of Washington State in the background.

    I, too, really do enjoy the challenge of taking photos of gulls in flight and this is one of the best I’ve seen – definitely a photo to envy! Great work George old friend.

  • Many thanks Peter, you do me honour my friend! I was getting some nice shots of that lovely evening when the gulls were doing their usual cruising along the cliffs.They glide so fast it’s a real problem to catch them, as you!

    Superb picture, George! So well done!

  • Thanks David, I’ve been a bit lucky with gulls, now and then. I have some that I took in nasty weather too, must post them sometime. They’re harder to get because they ride the gales so!

    Wow, they are close!

  • Hi John.yes, they were! Actually I tried many times to catch them up close and it’s very hard to do. They’re quite tame but they also fly quite!
