Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Flight

I hope you will enjoy my submissions this week. From time to time I like to try and capture all of the prompts in a single shoot thus resulting in a cohesive theme for the series. 
This week's prompt list: Shine, fast, left, peace and plain.

My chosen theme: Flight

Shine:
 Following this gull with my camera I shot straight up directly into the sun shine as he swooped over my head.
Fast:
 He was so fast. For this shot I wanted a stronger motion blur to the background than the bird which was accomplished by moving the camera with the bird.
Left:
 He looped around to the left and turned to come directly back towards me.
Peace:
Alright, I know it isn't a dove but he still looks so peaceful.
Plain:
Although I am more drawn the the shots with delicate of fluffy white clouds in them this one with the plain blue sky is alright.

I managed to capture all of these while I was at the beach with my family. Shortly after taking these photos I took my camera back to the car so I could get in the water and enjoy some fun with my kids and grand kids. While in the water a flock of gulls decided they liked my oldest daughter's bright red hair and were circling and swooping down at her. At her request I created these two composites to remind us of the episode which with our rather odd sense of humor we found very funny.
Although my daughter liked the first one I wasn't completely happy with it so I did this next one also.

Please be sure to fly over to Ashley Sisk's for more Scavenger Hunt Sunday submissions.

I must agree with Holly - my favorite was "shine!"

Great job interpreting all five prompts in one shoot! And great job with the composites as well :) Sounds like lots of memories were made
