Ring-billed Gull (Larus delawarensis) Catching the Last Rays of Light During Sunset

This beautiful Ring-billed Gull was taken the night before my last post. During this sunset, there weren’t any clouds to light up in the sky, however, the clear winter sun did cast a beautiful pink light onto everything it touched. When I saw a group of Ring-billed Gulls resting on the beach, I decided to photograph them against the dark blues and purples of the earth shadow on the opposite horizon. I ended up quite liking the subtle contrasts between all of the pastel colors.
