Finally got a few hours to spend processing more of the photos that we took while we were on our cruise back in April. On the third day of the cruise we were docked in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. In the late afternoon we went out on deck to watch the sunset, and we found that there was a very stiff breeze blowing, with sustained winds around 20-25 mph. We noticed that the seagulls, which always accompanied the ship while in port, were flying into the wind as they came close to the ship, and for the most part they were simply hovering in the air with their wings widespread.
I had the telephoto lens on my camera, and managed to get some great shots of these beautiful birds in the late afternoon sun as they circled around us.
The full-size version of these photos can be seen on my Flickr site in the set titled Gulls in Flight. They were all shot as JPG files and processed in PaintShop Pro X3.
I haven’t been able to get out with the camera lately, and now it’s beginning to get really hot here in the Valley. I have a four-day weekend coming up for the Fourth of July, so I’m hoping to spend some quality camera-time then. I miss it!
