A real sensation of freedom in the image.I'm sure most people imagine at least once in their lifetime how it would feel to soar the skys, free as a bird.Take care and a Happy and Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones.

I thought of Joathan Livingston Seagull the moment I saw this picture! A very dramatic shot as he soars into the clouds.

Hi Bob. You have captured this lone gull so well . giving a felling of being alone it looks as if it was enjoying itself. I live about 5 miles from the sea. the gulls fly over head to the fields when a farmer is working . one all ways goes out first in search of food so the others dont waste energy after a few min 100s fly by. clever things birds .TFS. your good notes .

I like the way you caught this seagull turning his head towards the patch of blue sky surrounded by dark cloud, as if that's where he wants to be! I guess he's looking towards brighter times to come, but that's a typical interpretation from someone living in the dark north.

Thanks for this lovely image of the gull hanging on the wind with very forboding clouds above. This is a romantic image for people who love freedom.

Hi Bob.- Seagulls means for me Freedom, like this one. they can fly to far and stay where they want. And like all the birds in earth, they dont worry about the food, becouse always God provides. They are great wariors and never give up, If the wind throws the nest, they build it again as many times it is necesary.
and the best of all ... Singing.

A real beauty!
Yes, you captured the feeling of soaring...the freedom of it.
Good stuff again.
And I can relate to the gull...some days its all about food, some days about the flight. :)

Nice picture and a poignant poetic note to accompany it. This a very artistic shot; not too close on the gull, which allows you to maximise the imact of this soulful sky...like an angel ascending to the heavens. Simply beautiful.
Thanks for sharing,

A lonely seagull in the sky, you did a good capture of it inflight, also the cloud details are an asset to the photo. A good detailed note, well done, thanks for sharing.

Beautiful low angle capture of inflight seagull against the luminosity of cloud. I also tried something like this which can be seen as the latest inclusion by me. I still remember you had taken one shot of a high flying eagle in the clouds with lovely composition. TFS.
