A silhouetted sea gull launches off its perch on top of a lamp post just behind Ballycastle’s harbour.
I took this photo just as the light was starting to go and I was starting on my way home.
Initially I was just lining the shot up to capture a sitting gull in silhouette, but just as I went to take the shot, the gull took off. Couldn’t have been timed better.
If I had a little more time I could have dropped the ISO to reduce the noise in the shot, but I’m pretty happy with the moment being seized.
