Birds at Sunset Cliffs

Sunset Cliffs Seagull, Sunset Cliffs, San Diego, CaliforniaAs I sit in rainy, grey England, fighting a most exhausting head cold, it’s hard to believe that less than a week ago I walked along Sunset Cliffs in Point Loma, San Diego.

Seeing as how my energy is somewhat limited right now, I thought I’d just share a few of the pictures I’ve enjoyed looking at as I revisit my latest holiday. These images focus on seagulls within their environment (no close-ups), but if you look closely, you might see a cormorant, too.

    This is beautiful. I love how you captured the contrast between the sky and the water, and the sky’s reflection on the water. Brilliant!
