When all else fails “You can always use Gulls“.
Around Connecticut there is never a shortage of some type of Gull. They always put up a good show. Better yet, very photogenic.
During the winter here there are times you don’t find that ‘thing’ you started out to photograph. A dark sky, dull horizon, and bright (or dirty) snow can ruin any day of shooting.
When I have been out for awhile and running empty I know “You can always use Gulls“.
The other day I was sitting on a large log on the shore. Sunny, which is rare now, and not too cold. My subject was on hand. So here they are in black and white which worked well with the shadows and reflections.
Special thanks to Connecticut photographer George Savic for the reflections idea. I saw these shots and thought of his great photograph.
