Seagulls on Icebreaker – Fine Art Photography Print

I took a picture at a place called “Novotného lávka”, a few meters from the famous Charles Bridge in Prague. Although the seagull is not one of the most common bird species in Prague, you will see hundreds of them along the Vltava River. Seagulls like to sit in flocks as close as possible to the river. They like to hang out on wooden stakes dipped in half in water, which serve as protection against floating ice floes.

When I went to Novotný footbridge in December 2018 to take a picture of Charles Bridge, I noticed a huge flock of seagulls. Birds, along with slanting stakes, created something like a pattern or system. And photographers love it, and so do I.

I took several pictures here with my Nikon D7100. But I like this photo the most, because it shows the landing bird, which is also located in the left third of the image. This forms an interesting composition against a background of a flock of sitting birds. The diagonal inclination of wooden stakes also has an interesting effect.

For capturing this image I used a Tamron 70-300mm f4-f5.6 DI VC USD lens set to 92mm, aperture f4.2, shutter speed 1 / 40s, without flash. I didn’t have a tripod with me, so I rested my elbows on the railing and took pictures until I created the shot you see here. Now you can buy it and hang it on the wall of your apartment or office.

Choose an Aspect Ratio That is Perfect for You

I always recommend that photo collectors should only buy photos in their original proportions, as the photographer intended. However, if you like the square format of photos, for example, you can choose a square print. In addition to the square format, you can order horizontal or vertical photography.

The print sizes shown in the table above apply only to the original aspect ratio photo. Please keep in mind that if you do not keep the basic aspect ratio, the photos must be cropped.

There are two different ways to mount your acrylic print:

Mounting posts: Connect your print to the wall using four aluminum mounting posts. The cylinder lock of each mounting post can be removed, allowing you to thread a small screw along the center axis of the post and into the wall. All required hardware is included.
