SnowGull by thrumyeye SnowGull by thrumyeye

Past weekend it was snowing like crazy and I was so eager to go out...
Unfortunately we would be celebrating Sinterklaas, so no time to go to a forest, enjoying the snowstorm...:(
But wild horses couldn't keep me inside with fantastic un-Dutch weather like this, so I found a little escape and decided to try my luck in my own neighbourhood...
Then I found some gulls.
I posed myself on the ice and slowly got snowed in.
I put my camera in a plastic back to protect it because the snow was getting heavier every minute.
With frozen hands and snow in my eyes I tried to focus on the gulls in the snow and to my surprise I managed to make some decent shots.
This definitely was best Sinterklaas in years ;)

What a beautiful, peaceful image -- all the quiet of snowfall is in it. Especially considering what you went through to get it, this is a truly remarkable shot.

it's hard, at least for me, to get capture birds in flight. I always have focus problems.
