It was the October Bank Holiday here and it proved a perfectly relaxing day. A nice lie-in (no dawn shots for me),
a leisurely lunch and then a drive across the mountains and into Omeath. Omeath is a seaside villages whose
fortunes have changed down the years. Once a popular spot with holiday makers from Northern Ireland, it has since
lost out to neighbouring Carlingford which has established itself as a trendier location with its medieval castles and
posh eateries. Omeath still has a certain charm though, with beautiful views across the Lough.
These three gulls were resting on the slipway, where high tides had washed the seaweed onto the railings.

It seems that even the sea is adding to the air of abandonment by adorning the railings with seaweed this way - reclaiming the land as its own.

Thats a very high tide. Or someone put the railings too low. Nice capture, I like the Threesome of gulls

A fascinating image. I like how the middle one is napping and the two farther ones are wearing black stockings. A wonderful shot on a relaxing day.

Great scene, the seaweed looks like spools of VHS tape thrown to the wind by somebody who's just got their first DVD player! ;-) +V
