Living on the edge.. or not!



While the cormorants perched perilously on a rock off Trigg Island braving the stormy weather a few days ago, one or two taking a dive as they were hit by the waves, just five minutes up the coast on the same day sheltered by the sea wall at Hillarys Boat Harbour a colony of seagulls huddled together on the pontoon, the only give-a-way that it was wild and windy the palm trees blowing out horizontally in the last shot. So what are you.. a cormorant or a seagull? As I was nearly blown off my feet a couple of times.. I guess on that day I was a little of both 😉 Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  5. One thing is for certain, I wouldn't be the one sitting on the edge with the waves crashing over me. It really was a windy day down there.

  6. Your cormorant photos are amazing. I know those are water birds, but those waves are powerful and dangerous. I try to not live on the edge. Have a good end of the week.

  9. Those cormorants have a tough grip to weather those waves. They are quite impressive birds.

  10. I like the possibility of flying but I don't think the life of a bird is anything I'd long for, cormorant or gull!

  13. Wow I sure wouldn't want to join them on that edge! They appear to be very steady from lots of experience! Nice capture of them and I'm happy you didn't get blown away!

  14. It reminds me of that video with the mother duck and ducklings, and the ducklings keep getting blown around like tumbleweeds.

  15. Beautiful shots, Grace, I just can´t decide! Looks like a converse lookout, kinda. Right now sunny, but a forcast of rain with 89% when I´m just on my way home later :-)

  16. Amazing shot!Ducks are very brave to overcome the waves. I can see the force of the wind by seeing the coconut tree leaves...

  17. The commorants seem not impressed by the rough sea. They have studdy feet!

  18. Really windy! I wouldn't be in either place, I think I would be under the blankets at home, lol.

  19. A windy day is so exciting! We have had a couple of really windy days recently, trees and electric wires down. Love the cormorants dodging the waves.

  21. Love these photos but I have never been one to want to be close to the sea. I love a walk along the beach, and I will paddle, but I never want to be close for very long. Not sure what it is that worries me but something does. Take care Diane
