Herring Gull on the harbour wall at New Quay, Ceredigion, west Wales; 23 September 2014.

Once again, my love for these “rats with wings”, whose anarchy, opportunism and sheer being good at what they do upsets our ordered little seaside – and now urban – worlds.

And a delicate beauty here perhaps, but that hard eye has you in its gaze and this is no time to let your guard down by drifting off into sentiment and aesthetics.

D800 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 400 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Antique Plate II preset.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  2. Great image – a very hard stare from the rat with wings (I’ve never heard that and love it!). Hope you enjoyed your trip 🙂

      Yes, the trip was good. We bypassed Swansea on roads that weren’t there “in my day”, but it still felt distinctly strange being in the vicinity of the place again. And Wales’ far west, especially the coast, was a distinct pleasure – somewhere really different and, in all senses, a breathe of fresh air. Glad you like the pic – thanks. A

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
