Apologies for not having been around much. Just back from a superb trip to Orkney.

Lots to process but I thought I would share this one with you. I was trying to capture the Fulmars in the sunlight with the cliffs behind in the shade. The idea was to expose for the highlights and end up with a nearly completely black background. The high levels of contrast and the fact that the Fulmar is basically grey and white anyway lent itself to a mono conversion.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking
