Four cormorants...

Post by Matt Quinn » Sun Nov 05, 2017 2:10 am

...one Mallard, and gulls too many to count.

On the cliff at the National Seashore, 100 feet above the beach.

I don't see the birds, but I love the winding path and weather-beaten shrubs against a blustery sea.

I mentioned the birds to give a sense of scale. The waves are about 10 feet high; the cormorants are the four dots just below the horizon on the far right. The Mallard is just to the right of the curling wave to the right of the end of the path. And the gulls are tiny dots scattered throughout. Too much to ask, I realize, but I tried. I didn't know any other way to convey the sense of being on a cliff 100 feet or so above the water since there were no people on the shore. Thanks for the positive comment. Matt

I couldn't have found the cormorants for pay, but I always love a winding path I can follow to the beach! Who doesn't? Nice processing and very satisfying composition.

Thanks Minnie. On my iMac, I have to enlarge to see the birds and even then they are still tiny. Sometimes too much is just too much. Thanks for the comment. I have a few more shots from that shoot as well as some from a few days before, some of which show the little people and may post if they seem worthwhile. Matt

Ten-foot swells? I gotta grab my board and check out those cormorants! S-
