He Walks on Water?

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

As I mentioned, this past Saturday after work I headed to Capitol Lake to photograph the beautiful fall colors. While I was there I was fortunate enough to catch this guy chillin' on a log, as well as a variety of colorful foliage. Down at the other end of the lake however, there was a miracle a happenin'. A seagull that walks on water. Of course as soon as he saw me he just stood there as if nothing was going on. Show off!

    The seagull is quite funny. And the reflection is attention-getting. It's hard to know where it starts and stops. Nice photo!

    I think he's just enjoying himself too much to notice anyone else! Those colors reflected on the water are amazing.

    Looks like stained glass! Quite incredible. Yes, that silly gull is showing off. They do that.

    Gorgeous autumn colors and reflections! Stunning capture!

  15. Oh wow!! that is truly amazing---not the gull but the colors and the colorful reflections. Oh the bird is amazing too but I don't think he really walks on water. haha MB

  16. I must agree with Julie, it looks like painting :-)
    Great colours are one thing, but the light here is truly beautifull and this "creates" the bird...
