Winging It On Thursday

"I pick the prettiest part of the sky and I melt into the wing and then into the air, till I'm just soul on a sunbeam." ~ Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingstone Seagull

"I think it is a pity to lose the romantic side of flying and simply to accept it as a common means of transport...."  ~ Amy Johnson


  1. This is more than winging it, Duchess. Theses are wonderful photos of the gulls. And the upper left one with the clouds looks heavenly.

    You saw my attempt at capturing a gull in flight. I'll not give up though.

    Ralph will like the plane photo! I'll show him.

  2. Awesome! I'm right partial to critters with wings and, being a pilot, I do love airplanes of all shapes and sizes. Great post with the quotes.

    Big hugs, honey...

  3. 'soul on a sunbeam' - that's lovely

    I have never captured a good bird in flight image
    these are wonderful

    I love the light and the glow in the first one - upper left
    stunning Linda, just plain stunning

    so when is the gallery showing?

  4. Love the quote and the photographs.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  5. You captured the birds in the so well and I hadn't been by yesterday so kudos on the swans as well. It really is time for you to go pro.

    I need to re-read Johnathan Livingston Seagull again. Great shots, my dear.

  7. All those different shades of blue are calming :)

  8. All are fine flight pictures. I wonder what can be seen from that plane?

  9. Now my stepdad would appreciate the words about flight. I'm not so keen on it, but I do like the passion in the two quotes you chose.

  10. Free as a bird. I love It!

  11. I love those bird pics... seagulls some call them the rats of the sky. ain't that mean

  12. Jonathan Livingstone Seagull is my favourite book of all time and your pictures captured the essence of it perfectly Linda. Thankyou. x
