Pic(k) of the week 6: Taking flight
Most people know I've been fascinated by flight since a very young age and are aware about my day job as an airline pilot.
Even though I'm not a birder, I do regularly come home with Seagull images from all over the world. That was again the case 2 days ago when I went out for a shoot in Dubai and spotted a whole bunch a Seagulls sitting on an unused dock at Dubai Creek.
While I approached the spot one gracefully took flight...
Even though I've never really done anything with my Gull images, I decided to create a new gallery in my Wildlife collection. A bit of a personal project I guess. Feel free to have a look here.
