Gulls Galore. Olympus E-PL3

Gulls Galore. Olympus E-PL3, originally uploaded by Kimb0lene.

It’s impossible for me to not take pictures of seagulls along the beach. The end result of all the same-same pics is sometimes one like this. I really love the grey of the gulls against the green of the ocean


The Tern.

Lots of Terns on the beach and they seem to spend most of the day just sitting there watching the world go by (not unlike me ).

I snapped this photo with my iPhone4 and Hipstamatic app whilst walking along the beach. Never easy to catch these in-flight so I am quite pleased with how this turned out.

Horror on the Beach. Olympus E-PL3

The Sanderlings are the cutest animals on the beach and whilst watching them yesterday this giant gull swooped down and took one of them. Nature can be very cruel.

This phot was just a snap as the gull was quite keen to get away from the scene of the crime.

Here come the Peeps. Olympus E-PL3

The Sanderlings that inhabit the Florida beaches are just the cutest things to watch. They runs fast as their little legs can go but they have been more approachable in the windy weather during the past few days.

Seagull Reflection – Olympus PEN Lite E-PL3

Seagull Reflection (E-PL3), originally uploaded by Kimb0lene.

I really like the reflection of the seagull in the sand on this one. The seagulls were all along the beach this day and you just had to approach calmly and quietly and you had a chance of a decent snap.

This was taken on the first day of using my Olympus PEN Lite E-PL3. There was a lot of glare so it was hard to see what was going on at times, and I still have a lot to learn about the camera. But it was the right one to buy – I love it.

My collection of iPhone pics taken at the fantastic Ft Lauderdale beach. It’s easily my favourite holiday destination – great beach with shops and restaurants nearby. I loved how the beach was so different every day. Early on it the waves were bigger, the sea not so clear and there was quite a lot of seaweed. After a few storms the water became a lot smoother and clearer and you could see all the fish. The pelicans are so graceful to watch when they fly overhead. Not so graceful when they dive beak first into the water to get their fish! Watching the fish and birds first thing in the morning was wonderful.

Hipsta Horror

Tonight was the first Halloween Horror Night of the season at Universal Studios Orlando. Here are a few of my favorite pictures I took with Hipstamatic and iPhone 3GS. It’s not easy getting photo’s in the dark but I think these are interesting.
