Seagulls and Pelicans

We went out yesterday to go fishing off the boat but due to motor problems we didn't get to go fishing but I took some photos of the seagulls and pelicans. With the blurry ones because they were flying I played with some artistic effects on Photoshop.

The last 2 photos are of the gutsy pelican who took all the fish scraps I threw in the water.
thanks for stopping by for a look.

Burns Beach

Hi there,
last night I went to Burns Beach with the Friends in Focus group and took photos of the sunset and the water on the rocks. Unfortunately there was a hair on my lens so every photo had it in the middle. I did manage to crop a couple down. It was a lovely evening on the beach.

I love the soft water effect you get with a slow shutter speed.
I will be back with some of seagulls.
have a good week

Sarah and Claire

hi there,
Its been awhile since I popped in here to show you some photos. I have had the opportunity to have a practice photo shoot with my friend Sue's grand daughters. Sarah and Claire allowed me to photograph them to learn a little about portrait photography. We had a fun afternoon in Sue's garden. Let me know what you think of these photos. Aren't they lovely girls.

Claire with Holly



I took so many photos so found it hard to pick just 3. I hope they like what I have done. I am looking forward to having more photo-shoots in the future.
