Keith,

I don't find gulls boring at all, especially ones this good. All of these are good shots actually. I like both the shots and the accompanying commentary.

BTW, in North Alabama, the water has been liquid for about, uh , forever. :lol:

Regards,

Frank

Well, you know Keith, that here in Seattle many folks don't find the Seagals boring at all, especially during football season, as they are the Seattle Seahawks Cheerleaders :wink: .

Great job on the exposure, and you are right, it is tough. On the last shot, is that a very religious bird? Walking on the water? I stay away from the parts of Washington where the rivers freeze, if I can :lol: .

Hi Bill.......

Learned something new today, did not know the Seattle Seahawk cheerleaders were called the seagals, LOL......atleast their is something to watch on the field :wink:

if that is a religious bird, our whole bird community go to the same church. LOL......... another week or so and most of the rivers will be open, now for the lakes, well another month of so, saw people driving on the ice on the weekend icefishing, would catch me on there with it, always someone goes through every year :shock: and they seem surprised. LOL

thanks for commenting Bill, felt good to have the camera back in the ol'hands..........had to do too much thinking, ouch!

Great shots. I like the last one of the duck. It looks like he is walking on air, not the ice. And I share your pain....It has just got nice in Upstate New York. It has been agony looking at images of birds in water when all we have is ice.

Thanks, Keith, glad to see that the Cold Weather hasn't frozen all of your sensory equipment..... :wink: .

As to the game, that is actually the biggest disadvantage of being credentialed and on the field, at least for me. The 2 minute warning snuck up and I thought is was still the 1st half :lol: . OK, it's not quite that bad, but I do find myself losing track. It is a little better with the Everett Hawks games I am shooting as the Indoor Football field is only half as long so I am only half as tired from running back and forth. But it is tough to really follow the game. Maybe the guys who do this "for a real job" have picked up the ability to both watch for "the shot" and follow the game, but if they can, I am no where near that myself, and that is NOT because I am busy watching the Cheer Leaders or the Hooter's Girls at the Hawks game :wink: .

If you ever have the opportunity to be on the field for a pro event, don't hesitate, take the opportunity. You will be around some of the finest folks, at least I was, that I have met with a group of photographers. I can't say enough about how well I was treated. And I think I accomplished all my goals:

1. Don't look like I had no clue
2. Don't get run over by some huge, hulking, sweaty NFL player(s)
3. Get at least 1 shot I could be happy with

An added bonus was all the free food in the media room. I think that is the only reason a lot of the regulars do this. They don't have to eat for the rest of the week during the season :lol: :lol: :lol:
