I love the layers of color and that the students were so engaged with the shot being taken. Fabulous.
A wonderful shot of a place I am very fond of..The sky looks like a water color with the contrast of the birds flying around, gives a sense of depth..I have circled around this island a few times over the years , and the one thing the photo can't convey is how incredibly loud the birds are ......How fun for Keenan and Collette to see themselves from this angle.
A cool pic with visual layers of color, texture and movement...and of course, the delight of it all!
What a life to live, and what a picture to depict some of it. A wonderful scene of the blue and green tents leading the way to what must be the 'outhouse', and work quarters beyond. The birds resting and circling around make for an amazing shot, to say nothing of the story. Our young adults can be pretty amazing! j.e.s.........
I love the texture, contrast and drama; the white water against the smother banks, the delicate white eggs against the hard piles of rocks, the kids waving from the top of the abandoned looking structure they use for a kitchen, the birds as arbitrary as the eggs and the stormy sky. It is captivating.
@bonnie dalrymple i've been out there too....unfortunately on a very damp foggy evening...but yes...the bird calls were incredible. still...we saw nuff puffins and enjoyed the trip out a great deal.
@Keenan Yakola Hope that you enjoy the photo! How great to be able to find out who was on top of that shack!
