Picture of wave and seagulls sailing on strong wind in Northern Norway

Picture of wave and seagulls sailing on strong wind in Northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera February 15th 2008. Click image for larger view.
We had another day with strong winds from the northwest, but today I dared taking my camera outside for a few photos of the great waves.
In this picture you can see some seagulls sailing on the strong winds. It looked like the seagulls were enjoying themselves and had no problems with the extreme conditions. I’m guessing they were hanging around looking for snacks that the ocean was throwing ashore.
After a big storm like this it’s fun to go for strolls along the coastline to see if the waves have washed up anything cool. Might go for one of those strolls tomorrow and of course I will bring the camera 🙂

If you want to have a closer look of our seagulls have a look at this picture.
