STORM GULL Lesser black-backed gull, Larus fus­cus Ne­whaven, East Sus­sex

Taken at Ne­whaven, as Storm Brian hit our shores in Oc­to­ber 2017. A gale-force wind meant hav­ing to con­stantly hold on to my tri­pod, to pre­vent it be­ing blown away, and I was for­ever hav­ing to wipe the sea spray from the lens. The gulls were clearly en­joy­ing it, though, catch­ing the wind and fly­ing low over the waves be­fore cir­cling around and go­ing again.
