Photographed on June 19, 2018
This was my first visit to the Black Skimmer colony this year. I started out kayaking the marshy areas near the colony trying to find a spot they were skimming. I came up empty in that search but did come across a few American Oystercatchers in the marsh which made for some nice photos. I then went to the colony for sunset. This was my first evening shoot at this location and it proved to be an amazing spot for backlit photos which I love to shoot. I tried to mix it up with backlight and front light as well as get some nice interaction photos.
You can watch a video of me shooting live that day below.
