My Sunday Photo: The Harbour


seagull, gull, sea bird, bird, cornwall, cawsand, sunday photo, photo, birds, blogger, blog, parent blog, plymouth bloggers, plymouth blog, single, lifestyle,


Pots, coiled ropes, orange, blue 
Laid, at the harbor side, waiting 
Waiting, for the tide, 
An old fishing net, laid on the concrete, 
A weathered sunburnt fisherman, 
Sitting quietly repairing holes within holes
Birds perching patiently on the harbor wall, 
Waiting 
In the distance the sun dips towards the horizon
Casting a light over a returning trawler
The birds lift lethargically from 
Harbour perch, beat their wings , wheel 
Towards an incoming meal ticket

  6. Great shot! I'm never patient enough to wait for a bird to get close enough (or the kids chase them off...)

  10. I love gulls - they are so rude and wild while completing adapting to the invasion of their space by people and buildings. And they love flying so much. I'm always trying to photograph them, but I've never reached this standard
