Archive dive

This archive dive is becoming a regular habit here but it's been fun for me to go back and see some of the stuff I did when I was first learning. I've also discovered that some of it, in my opinion, wasn't half bad.
The picture of the seagull was taken at a place not too far from where I live. It's roughly a half hour drive and we usually stop there at least once a year.


So the name of the place that this picture was taken is the Pymatuning Spillway in Linesville, Pa. It's billed as being the spot where the ducks walk on the fish.
I found a video on you tube that someone took of the fish. I think you'll understand when you see it why the ducks are able to do that.

Nope, I have never thought of fish as being amongst the downtrodden. Perhaps it is time.

Contrary to a lot of people, I love seagulls they are magnificent birds and I fell a bit sorry for them. Our waters have been overfished and they are inland more than at sea looking for food.

We have 2 that have been visiting us for several years, I know its the same pair as the female has a bad let and the male is a really big bird, they won't let any other seagull near to where we feed them.

We call them Floppy and Sid (such original names) and I swear they know us, when we come back from being out they greet us with loads of cackling, its as thought they are saying, 'here they come'
Or am I just a mad old woman. lol

Love the outline picture.

That's a lot of fish. Do you suppose they are comfortable there? I can't stand crowds and I wouldn't think fish would like them either.

Hey Ann...I love the second picture you've put up...did you draw this or create it on the computer???

Sandra said...

that is a lot of fish in one spot. kind of spooky even. you are right, this is a really great gull pic, not just a gull sitting, it's beautiful with the wing up. i like your archives, keep them coming. if we have beautiful pics and no one sees them that is a shame.

Bossy Betty said...

Amazing! Love that first picture too!

Duni said...

Amazing video! And I so love the pencil drawing of the sea gull! Awesome!

Sandee said...

Yikes on that video. That's a mess of fish indeed.

Love your bird shot. It's tough to photograph birds.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Love the gull photos and the editing you did on it!

As for that video....weird. I looked up the location on the web and found lots more weird pictures...Carp are crazy hungry fish!!

Grace said...

The first photo is great but how did you ever do the second one? Was that printed out? Really nice effect...Likey, Likey!

Lin said...

I always like to see what you have experimented with--keep 'em coming!

the Fish--BLECH! I can't watch that 'cuz it's gross! That is why I don't keep koi--they are just gross when they get big like that. Here is my theory: Any fish that would willingly eat spit is just gross.

Donna said...

You did a wonderful job on the photo!
And that's a LOT of fish!

Sharkbytes said...

You are so good at making other effects with your pix!

Marg said...

That is one heck of a lot of fish. No wonder the ducks can walk on them. Wonder if they all survive. Thanks for the ahead of time prayers for you Mom. Take care and have a great evening.

Chatty Crone said...

Your seagull pictures are pretty. And man this would be a great place for fishing - right? sandie

Reeni said...

The seagull pictures are really pretty! I've never seen fish crowded in like that and don't they have any food? Seems like they're starving. I wonder what would happen if someone fell in? Scary! But fascinating.

Reena Walkling said...

It's fun to go archive diving! Love the pics!

Ratty said...

Those pictures are wonderful. Did you get that pencil effect from Photoshop?

There are places in Michigan where there are that many fish. They come over to beg for food when they see people.
