Seagulls Rising on a Thermal   |   Mesmerising Moments

I lie in the garden. Hot prickles of sweat slip down my back.

The warm, soft breeze ushers in cotton wool clouds. High above, the swallowed vowels of seagull caws call the flock to the thermal.

They ascend lazily, getting smaller by degrees. Circling above my head carrying my thoughts deep into summer’s blue sky.

Birds stream to the base and join the race for the summit.

The highest gulls, grey specks beneath the cumulus, shoot out of the thermal disappearing in the ocean of blue.
