On angel’s wings

angels wings

This shot captures the joy I get from capturing the ordinary. This is just a common, black-headed gull landing at sunset but I find the moment breathtaking in its beauty. Nothing to do with my technical expertise; it is the beauty of the moment that I just happened to be fortunate enough to witness. To me, such moments are magnificent and they are there to be seen every day. I wish everyone a very Happy Christmas. I’m now off to start my celebrations. Have a great time.

    Thanks for another great photo, very nice capture. It’s unfortunate that more people don’t spend more time just looking at things around them. I highly recommend “walking and gawking” and it’s even more fun if you take a camera along
    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Christmas!

    The ability to see the beauty in our familiar surroundings and everyday life, that is the source of true happiness and fulfillment. Enjoy your celebrations.
