This curving metal "whale tail", on Blackpool's South Promenade, is a 26 feet high wind vane that rotates a bench so that the occupants are always sheltered from the sea breeze. The wind is no problem for the passing gull!

Another good one Tony. The gull certainly adds to the composition.

Great composition which echoes to the gull above.

Thanks Bill and Milou. I had to wait for the gull, and rejectedquite a few before the "right" one came along!
