Timing is everything to complete a shot, at this point on a Tuesday afternoon at 3:44pm a seagull took flight in the path of my lens. It finally completed the shot that I had been working on for a long time over the last year. I have come back to this location on numerous occasions attempting different angles, compositions and techniques. Now I have 3:44 added to the collection thanks to my seagull friend soaring high above.
