This seagull was sitting out to sea in Sherringham on the North Norfolk coast.
I took this picture on the same day I took the picture of the boat on the pebble beach in August 2011. It was taken with a Tamron 70-300mm Tele Zoom set to the full 300mm on a Pentax K-r. Because the lens was set to the full telephoto setting I had to increase the iso quite a bit to enable me to hand hold the camera and still get a sharp image. I did a bit of post processing in Lightroom to increase the blue of the sea and sharpen the image.
Although this is a simple image I like this a lot.
