Here is another image from my trip up to Connecticut. This was taken at the same time as my previous post. This gull ( a juvenile herring? ) was on a different post with the sun behind it. I liked the way the light was shining through the edges of it's feathers and beak, so I decided to practice exposing backlit subjects. I was really wishing that I had brought my polarizer along, it would have been helpful to make the sky in the background better looking. I still like this image as it is my most successful backlit image yet.
I hope you like it!
