Seagull on rock 35/16

Seagull

One of the classic pictures – a seagull standing on a rock. Nothing special when you are close to the sea or walk on the beach and yet I like it.

I like the contrast between the bird and the dark sea, the reflections and the rings in the water. The picture was taken during an early evening walk along the coast line south of Thornham Marina.

It is a lovely walk, no matter whether the tide is in or out. Prinstead has a small car park from which a foot path goes south along the coast line (strictly speaking the Prinstead Channel), turning left is a foot path towards Nutbourne and Southbourne. Following the foot path leading south, you reach Thornham Marina and can continue towards Thorney Island where the foot path splits to either walk around Thorney Island or do a smaller circular walk back to Prinstead via Emsworth and Hermitage.

Which ever way you choose, there is a lot of nature, tranquillity and wonderful views, especially sun sets 🙂

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
