Hi Michael,

particular image, more artistic than naturalistic, but that is still a way to represent one of the thousand faces of nature.Furthermore i appreciate particularly the B/W.Minimal, but nicely made.

Hello Michael,
I like this sihouette shot a lot. Even though there is virtually no visible detail to the gull, it catches your eye. It creates the feeling solitude and individuality, of soaring head-on into the unknown.
