Gull’d Coast

A seagull is silhouetted against the sunset illuminated Gulf of Mexico.

Not really a very difficult shot to get, in fact most cameras will take this shot automatically given these back-lighting conditions.  Finding the right circumstances, a patient seagull, the extremely warm sunset, and the reflection in the wet sand however are another matter.  Lots of luck and being in the right place at the right time made this shot possible.

The photo has a very calming mood to it making it one of my best selling photos.  That calming effect, no doubt, is why it is hanging in 2 medical facility waiting rooms!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
