p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Skimmers over their colony


On my last visit to Nickerson Beach I arrived and saw the usual large skimmer colony sitting at the top of the rise from the ocean. I wanted to try something different so I decided to photograph the birds as they flew back to the colony and with about 100 of them there was plenty of activity. I chose to shoot from a low angle by setting up between the colony and the water allowing me to kneel allowing me to pan with the birds. This turned out to be a lot of fun and quite a challenge compositionally.

Very well done Morris. I think you successfully captured some of the 'frenzy' that looks like was happening. Low angle and spot-on exposures make these top-notch.

Thanks for posting.
