CommentShot at the golden hour when the sun was trying to penetrate a mist that covered the salt lake. I wondered why I had made the effort to take a camera when I could hardly see a few metres in front of me. I lifted the view finder only to see white, white and then for a second this blurred action. The second allowed the gulls to see me and I was able to take my photo as they escaped. This photo tells a story of blurred action. It is aesthetically pleasing very indicative of the moment. The half light softens the image and the bright water droplets brings sparkles to the experience. The lack of technical details makes this impossible to put it in front of a judge. - it is not focused. I love it.
