I shoot this foto on the Vlietlanden, nearby Vlaardingen in the SW part of the Netherlands. This is one of the layer peat areas which have not settled. There is never drainage works have taken place. In wintertime in the late afternoon you get a perfect light to shoot this kind of pictures. There was no wind. The seagull had no hurry. (-: Handheld

Hallo Bob,

mooie warme kleuren met een mooie lucht en nog wel in de winter genomen.
Alleen jammer dat je onderwerp zo in het midden staat.
Mooi die reflecties op het water.

groet Gert

Hello friend Bob,
This is beautiful with a lone seagull on the post standing, and the late afternoon lights from an angle makes a golden impact on the whole place, simply beautiful indeed!
many thanks for sharing this
have a wonderful coming weekend, my dear friend!

Hello Bob,
A seagull has found her favourite position!
The top of masts and poles etc seem to have a special attraction for these birds, hehehe...
Good colours in this late autumn scenery!

Hi Bob,
I like the late evening light/warm color here..
The waters reflection adds well, giving his lone seagull a nice place to "reflect" ;-}
Well done,

Hi Bob,
nice compo, although the focus over the bird is not the best. colours and light are great, very warm, i can almost feel last sun of the day.
I donīt know if it was posible or not, but maybe you should have tryied to pic the reflection of the bird on water or more sky.. because the stick image over the water seems lonely and with no sense. But this is just my opinion.
Above all... itīs a great picture.
TFS and have a nice day
