Soaking Up The Sun


At last the weather's improving though with the Mistral that's been blowing these last few days, the sea has been definitely agitated. I was amazed that this gull sat quite calmly on a submerged rock while the waves washed over it but it was determined to enjoy those rays of sunshine..

You would think that if he planned just to stand around, he would find a warmer, dry place to stand.

beau portrait de cette mouette. Un bon bain de patte par ce temps, cela doit être assez froid

Beautiful shot! Love the blue and the water movement. The sea has been completlely crazy around here too, but now it has just settled down a little and surfers are enjoying it :-)

ornithology al fresco. that gull looks pretty content to be there, and I like how you've captured the light and the motion of the water.

I guess I would do the same.....on the beach, if I lived in Nice.

Yes, the weather is improving, and getting warmer now. I always wonder what a wonderful blue you always get in the skies and waters :)
