Default Lonely Seagull

Shot with the old E-520 using the "sunset" scene mode. Okay, I know that it is not the sharpest nor best technically, but I still kinda like it. It captures the attraction of sunset on the Florida gulf coast beaches.

I only cropped off the bottom where all the folks were standing to look at the sunset. (An evening ritual that is pretty common down here.)

E-520 and Sigma 55-200mm lens.

Nicely done Steven. I like it.

Got to tell you though people here like to get out as well. As they watch the sun setting into the rain clouds and listen to the plaintive cry of the gulls coughing.

Beautiful sunset Steven, I love the seagull flying on the deep red sky.

Thank you very much Marcelo. The sunsets down here can be very pretty, and they draw a lot of photographers.

Thank you very much Fred. Yes, I have a lot of sunset shots, but I chose to post that one because the seagull added more interest in the scene.
