Gansbaai seagull – Flickr pic of the day
Sandrotto says, “I took this picture off the coast of Gansbaai while on a great white shark cage diving trip. The weather was quite bad that morning and it was difficult to get a steady shot with my camera while the boat was constantly moving up and down. Still, for a fraction of a second, the seagull seemed to float in the air and I pressed the shutter button. It seemed that it was more interested in the bait we threw into the water to lure the shark close to our boat than in me taking a photo of it.
“Later on, we got a few glimpses of the great white shark and the event turned out to be as impressive as I imagined it would be.
“Cape Town is a wonderful city, and with so many great spots a photographer does not have to try hard to get decent pictures. They all look great – whether because of the special quality of the sunlight or because there are so many colourful things to take pictures of.
“I had only a few days to enjoy Cape Town, so I will definitely come back again soon,” he continues.
