Sepia Scenes - Sepia Scrounging


Sepia Scenes works well with the snowy submissions I have I have made recently. So, today I return to the warmer breezes from Long Island Sound, with nary a flake of snow, and a Springtime sepia tone.


These gulls seem content on the dock, resting comfortably on the piers and planks. The one with is wings extended and his webbed feet landing gear are down as he begins his final approach, wants to join in the 'fun' as well..


These sepia avians seem to be in their usual pose, waiting for the inevitable hand out. And any will do, especially from the fisherman’s bait chum bucket - a treat to these stylish and obnoxious gulls...


The shot was seen before, but a warming antique sepia has been added for seasonal warmth. See Mary’s fun monochrome meme for more of the lovely sepia!

Sea gulls really photograph well and look great in sepia! They are noisy and always scavenging but they look beautiful on those pier posts

You made something ugly look beautiful. (The gulls)

I rather love the backdrop of the water though. Very peaceful and inviting.

It looks like perfect weather for fishing :)
Looks very good in sepia too! Like the contrasts both in colors and close/far away :)

Great shot, Ralph! I love how some of the gulls are sitting and that other one is coming in for a landing! Nicely done and it does look warmer than it is out there right now.

Thanks for the breath of warm Ralph. This is a good one. I like the counterpoint of the winged gull against the others. Nice shot.

quotidian pulchritude, if I may be Latinate
