Reflections - Red-billed Gull
A red-billed Seagull standing in rippling waves, reflected in the water.
‘This was painted from a photo taken during a stroll along the beach at Mahurangi Regional Park. The waves were gently lapping but were darkened by a screen of cloud, leaving a just a sheen of light about the reflection. A calm and tranquil day.’
