Gulls on Ice by fishers

Gulls on Ice

Earlier in the week, Katharine and I had a walk around Rawcliffe Lake. Following a cold night, the lake had large areas of ice on it's surface.

The gulls were walking on the ice close to the centre of the lake, the ducks were in the water under the trees and shrubs near the shore almost out of sight, so it was the gulls who got their photos taken!

Nice shot. Great light. Love the soft reflections on the ice.

What a fabulous capture, the repeating pattern of the two birds, the gentle reflections and the surface texture of the ice. Big fav!

Out for a wee skate! Longing for a bit of ice and snow down here, but nothing yet. Love the reflections in the ice.

Thank you all for your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.

The focus on this shot was a bit softer than I would have liked, but the gulls were a long way away and I was pushing the lens to its limit. It is quite cold here, but no snow has settled, so no wintry snow scenes yet!

A fabulous shot, it looks like they are on a fogged mirror and I like the soft reflection
