Taken on the east coast of england (Yorkshire) (Withensea) this sea bird manages to take off from one of the groynes just as the wave crashes into the shoreline.

Minimal post shot editing, a little saturation, sharpening and cropping.

Olympus E500 D-SLR
1/200th Sec
Aperture Priority Mode
Focal length: Zoom Lens 45-150 set at 150 MM (300 mm 35 mm Equivalent).

This is my most favotrite shot that I have taken. It was a dismal dreary day, raining on and off and the sea was quite rough. I was pleased that at least one of the many shots I took that day came out well.

Featured in Shameless self Promotion Group.

I’m a semi pro photographer, happily married to Karen, born and raised in the West Midlands, England, but now living in West Yorkshire. I take many and varied images and enjoy the freedom that Photoshop and it’s like bring to the profession.

I would encourage anyone with an eye for a good composition to take the plunge and give this wonderful medium of digital photography a go.
