Foggy Morning at the Inlet

This morning I had to run a few errands and at one point I had some time in between appointments and I decided to head to the inlet.  I had my camera with me, but wasn't expecting to get many good pictures since it was so incredibly foggy today. But...
 


I discovered ducks love the foggy weather. I also discovered I love taking pictures in the fog. I love pictures with a lot of noise in them (that is code for grain). While most people try to edit out their pictures for perfect clarity sometimes I love to embrace the noise. Today was a perfect day for that.
 

Besides the seagulls in this post I am not sure what any of the other birds are. Although people asked me if I knew what they were. I told them unfortunately I wasn't sure what they were, but I had friends that did. So friends any clues???


 
There were so many ducks playing hide-and-seek in the fog. I knew they all looked very cool and I was hoping they would get closer so I could have a better look. 



The seagulls of course were strutting their stuff.


Getting closer!


 
J walker hee hee 

 
I can almost.... 

 
wait, No, come back. 


Oh well. They won this time.


At least the seagulls were extra photogenic in the dense fog.



 
I'm not sure what this bird was, but it was VERY large. Unfortunately the pictures don't show off it's size.
 


 
Well I hope I didn't bore you with my pictures from the foggy inlet. I really did enjoy having a little photo time out today :)

Tex is right, as always!! Your images are just extraordinary Andee, the ones in the middle, more toward the end, of the seagulls in flight are just amazing!!
