Earlier in the week on the way to work, I saw that the sun was rising directly behind the Salmiya point looking East from Kuwait Towers and it was pretty spectacular.
So, I was out and in place before sunrise, but today we had cloud cover and the crisp clean air from the previous few days was no longer there. Nevertheless I was here, so made the most of it and I also had the opportunity to put my new Canon EF 100-400f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM lens through it's paces and it was very impressive to say the least.
This Common Black-headed Gull was taken before the sun peeped over the horizon and no issues with focus or tracking (lightened a little in PS)
