Textures, colours, reflections, mooring buoys and a Black-headed Gull, in the harbour; 24 Sept 2014.

Amongst all this gaudiness and structure –  and if we turn a blind eye to its bright red bill – the gull is the only soft and calmly coloured thing on the menu.

There is another, very different image of mooring buoys and a gull in this harbour, here.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 800 ISO; Color Efex Pro 4.

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.

    Cheerful and interesting photo…ignoring bird’s bill of course!

    My first sense in this image is of mystery Adrian. Although I wouldn’t want the framing changed, I do wonder what were the subjects generating the red and green reflections. I do like it.

      I’m glad you like it, Dave – thank you! – but I hadn’t thought about this mystery aspect at all. This is one of the useful things about having others’ views on pictures. The red, I’m pretty sure, is the reflection of a boat, but the green isn’t actually a reflection at all – its out of focus, floating waterweed! Adrian

        Thanks Adrian. The mystery is over! 🙂 It is true, that people do see pictures differently. I immediately liked the shot, but also wondered, what’s that? I’m also glad the green was OOF weed, because I couldn’t work out how anything could reflect there.
