I love your image, very moody as is the weather by the sound of it. Gooed details and nice composition. Sorry your Captain will be delayed. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Donna.

Oh-oh...your changing your style and subjects!!! Good and great...What versatility you seem to have...this is an exceptional and quite different picture for you. At least for the few I have seen. And the quality is great! Subjects are caught in action. An overall really nice image..!

This is a great action shot Donna. You have captured the feeling of the approaching storm. I like the colors and texture of the water too. One always wonders about birds when the winds get that rough.

This is a sharp action shot of gulls feeding up before the storm: it's weird how they sense it. You got good sharpness despite the poor light and it's a fine composition.
The storm frequency and intensity seems to be increasing, perhaps owing to climate change.
Hope it does not have adverse effects on your Christmas,

What an amazing pose of this in-flight seagulls you present here!!
Very excellent action shot with superbe details and focusing.
Its colours show us very cold winter storm condition.
Well presented with your note.
TFS and best wishes,
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

The title works very well to quickly describe, and sets the stage for the dark mood of the capture..Great inflight action, and three's always work for me ;}

This is a nice action catch, it looks like a painting. I like those mouvments captured and tones of colors. Well done!

A good capture of the seagulls in flight or on the ice, the point of view is showing a lot of details of the feathers, it also precise. Hopefully the weather will improve, here it is raining. Thanks for sharing.

I loved this composition with 3 different movement of the birds which captured well in good sharpness, colour and details in it!
sincerely wishing a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hi Donna. Una muy bella foto, exelente claridad y muy hermosa presentacion.
A few minutes ago I heard a weather warning on the news... for the Great Lakes!! Believe me, that is not often in fact it is the first time...
So you better stay indoor and take care!
A wonderful moody image to predict the storm, birds are indeed the best weather girls there are...
Seasonal greetings from Norway,
A PEACEFUL AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!

Hi Donna! Grey--sky, lake, trees, ice. You've captured one of those days on Lake Erie when the whole world seems monochrome. Great capture of those gulls! Very well done! Linda
