I was in Northern California yesterday shooting an assignment for a national magazine. I can't release any of the photos till after the story is published, but when I was done with the paying job I cruised the beach near Brookings, Ore., and found a nice animal photo.
A seagull splashes in a freshwater creek on the beach along the Oregon coast near Brookings, Ore., on Wednesday, July 13, 2011. A group of large gulls were taking turns bathing in the cool water. Shot at 1/1250th of a second. I love what super-fast shutter speeds do to moving water.
