A Flock of Seagulls

There was a lot of snow in North Yorkshire recently. On a particularly cold and foggy day, one of my colleagues went to feed some geese and ducks during our lunch break.

We wouldn't have thought that a third force would come into play and attack, in order to get hold of the food resources ...

I happened to have my camera with the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle attached to it with me. So we ended up throwing bread into the direction - but still out - of the frame, which resulted in this seagull action shot (f/9.0, 20mm, ISO 400).

Slight vignetting and gradation curves postprocessing, to make it more dramatic*.

*Ok, I'll admit it: The huge amount of birds was originally distributed over 5 shots ;-).
