doc2949 is our chosen photographer for this Wednesday's Digital Photography Now Picture of the Day. Doc has only posted two images in his (her?) gallery, but the one we have chosen is simply sensational. The assortment of sea birds, including a couple of pelicans, perched on some posts emerging from a misty sea, is unusual and effective. The image is perfectly completed with the lamp post towering over the other posts. The grey and misty conditions, usually a frustration for photographers, has become this photographer's friend, adding a certain mood to the composition. I like this picture a lot!
