p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Lots of black skimmers


There are bout 1,300 black skimmers in the colony at Nickerson. The lighter colored ones are the juveniles born this year with about 300 of them have made it. In this set I start by showing the crowd from close up and then focus on some individuals.

The photos were taken on a dark gray day with clouds from Hurricane Jose's outer bands over me. I've chosen to leave the high ISO noise to set the mood.

Thank you Adhika,
As soon as I saw them on the beach I knew I could create an image like the first and set out to do it

Enjoyable set Morris. I've never seen a skimmer so yours are always a treat for me. I like your decision to keep the noise; I think it does add value to these.

Thanks for posting.

Thank you Ron,
They are trickier to expose in bright sun

Thank you Kim,
So many run away from noise without thinking about the artistic value.
