Seagulls in Shadow Cliffs Regional Park (Pleasanton, CA)

A few month back I visited Shadow Cliff Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA and took a few photos. I am here to show the seagull photos I took while in the park. Shadow Cliff Regional Park is a great place for bird watching, fishing, and also picnicking. For photographers, there are usually many birds (especially seagulls and geese) to photograph. During spring, there are also some wildflowers in the park. I find a walk in the park is pretty nice now and then.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

Tip: I shot a few photos of a bird in flight using continuous shutter. Those few photos are best viewed via a slideshow. Just click on the first photo of the sequence and the slideshow should load.

The seagull got a bit startled when I brought my camera out. It was going to fly away so I quickly took a shot of it with its wings up.  

Since the seagull was quite some distance from the shore, I guess it figured out I won't be able to reach it. It calmed down and posed for another shot. :P I think the thing it is standing on is for measuring the depth of the water.  

More seagulls on the sandy beach area of the park. As you can see there are many seagulls at the park.  

 Shot a 1 photo of a seagull in flight. Didn't get my settings quite right for this one, which is why I only had one shot. Below is my sequence of shots I did when the settings were right. 

The rest of the photos are of the continuous shutter shots I did of a seagull in flight over the lake. Click the first photo of the sequence to bring up a slideshow.

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
