Chris really likes to take pictures of seagulls. He says they are generally looked down upon and considered the pigeons of the beach. But they are a really common New England site. So he tries to take cool pictures of them in action to show how pretty they actually can be.
Here is a picture of a seagull in flight. I like the dramatic white against blue. Chris made this a black and white picture too because it highlights all the detail in the wings, but I really like the contrast in the color version.
This seagull is getting ready to land on the beach. This Ferry Beach in Saco, Maine.
We went to Pine Point in Maine and Chris spent most of the time trying to get seagulls in action. Here is a neat shot he took of a seagull banking in flight, but the really pretty thing about it is the tail feathers. They are all glowing from the lighting.
I like this shot of a seagull in flight. It is a simple black and white and the seagull is nicely lit.
