Seagulls on a black sea

While out photographing white tail eagles last weekend together with my friend Jon, we had some time in between the eagles. Our guide, Ole-Martin from Norway Nature, is also an experienced photographer, and he suggested that we took some photos of seagulls on a black sea.

I was curious to see how we could do this, as most of the photos I had taken so far did not get the black sea I was looking for.

However, Ole Martin knew the perfect spot and soon we had the seagulls taking off and landing near the boat, making it possible to get that velvet-like black feel and with great reflections.

Also, as they landed, the seagulls got great bow waves that caught the light and made them stand out.

The take-offs also made for great photos
