A seagull grabbing an early morning drink

Sunrise in the summer on the West Coast of California is one of the few times the beach is quiet and peaceful. The waves crashing is the only noise heard for miles along with the coos of sea birds. This seagull grabs a quick drink before flying off towards the Malibu coastline.
