I have been photographing Common Murres, Guillemots to those not in North America, for years now but I have never been able to find a place that allows good access and good light angles. I found that this year Here are some that were nesting amongst the Brandt's and Pelagic Cormorants.

1 being Alcids they aren't the best at walking around on the steep rocks where they nest so there is a lot of wing flapping to aid their balance

Tim, these are just stunning !!! The nuances in the colors you have captured is amazing and I'm sure not easy.

You're sure right about the evenness of the light, Tim.
A great location and some terrific shooting.

Crisp, beautiful images Tim! Those are very enjoyable to view. #1 and #4 are my faves. Love the poses & BGs on both.

I love the brown felt/velvet look to these beautiful Alcids, and you captured it perfectly in this set Tim.
All are fantastic but 3 and 4 are over the top buddy... man those are both special.
Cliche or not... that sunset is absolutely gorgeous.
Excellent work to get this access with such nice light angles... so worth it.

Murr-aculous

Difficult subject and one of your favorites.

I like #3, I would love to see this one not cropped so tight, I think the pose is strong and it needs more glory around it honestly. And a bit more NR possibly....nit
#4 solid one, very nice!
Lovely sunset, always give a good feeling to end a day when you can see this event
