I photographed this black skimmer at Nickerson Beach on Long Beach Island, New York yesterday afternoon as the sun was starting to get sweet.

Very cool sequence Morris... I never see the Skimmers in the shore break, these are lovely in the sweet light.

Very nice set, Morris. #2 is my top pick from this beautiful photos mainly because of the calm surface and then the wave comes in.

Nice sequence, like short-water skimming and the foamline. Lovely light. You can hear the surf Morris!
