I took this shot on the beach in Brighton early one morning. I had walked down from my hotel to try and capture the sun rising over the pier, but as I was looking for a suitable position I noticed this gull sitting very still on the front of this boat. I quickly and quietly set up my camera and got this shot. I was so thrilled he didn’t fly away, he really didn’t seem to be bothered that I was there. I particularly love the texture of the aged wood with the sunlight reflecting off it. I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with a 27mm Fuji lens.
