It seems, as if the seagulls are trying to catch the sinking sun.

These are really great shots, but i only slight issue is that the birds all seem to be soft and out of focus, i accept the fact that when light is short it can be very difficult asking a gull to keep still!

Very nice! Were these taken on your way home while riding on a boat? I love sunrise and sunsets very much and think it would really be awesome to see them each day from on the water like this.

The seagull (perhaps by the name of Jonathan in the thirdone seems to have already caught the sinking sun!Such an unusual capture indeed

Matt, you're right on your observation. Please don't take the lines below as an excuse, but explanation of the conditions.

I've fixed the focus distance to an approximate value where the seagulls are passing, but as you admit they are not in conscious that they are posing, in addition as Bob says I have taken these shots handheld on a small ferry driving me home.
I wish I could do better in taking photo on a shaking ferry while holding the camera by hand, trying to catch flying birds under a counter light with a camera having limited adjustmet capabilities.

Yes Bob,
You're familiar with here anymore. I have to confess that such or better images on sky occur not less than 300 days in a year here.
