gulls on an island

We went to New Plymouth today and stopped at some of the lookouts.
The water was such a lovely color in the sun, but the photos didn't even come close!
So, I will show you one of the Sugar Loaf Islands  and the gulls on hanging out on it.

In the same way we have towns and cities around the world, so it is that seabirds form 'cliffities'!!! &*> YAM xx

Hello, pretty view of the water and island. Looks like the gulls are using the place as a nesting spot. Great photos. I appreciate your joining in with my 200th Critter party. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

A beautiful outlook for sure!
Looks like a bird's rock.

There's nothing quite as exciting (or smelly) as a visit to a seabird colony.

I know what you mean about the water - as good as our cameras are, sometimes the best picture is still the one we see with our own eyes. I love these shots of the gulls - looks like there will be babies soon!

How beautiful! And what a perfect place for them to roost or nest...or just hang out! Wonderful photos!

Wow a beautiful craggy place with all those birds. If you use a post processing program you can enhance the colours to make the shots more realistic.

Betty instead of looking at the gulls, I ended up staring at the rough cragginess of the rocks along the shore. I guess we each are drawn to different things.
