Emmanuel Boitier - Stretching Razorbill


A razorbill stretches in the first pale lights of the early morning, on the top of a Scottish cliff. A rare moment of respite in the very agitated life of a noisy colony counting several thousands (millions?) of seabirds.

Location: Scotland, Stonehaven

    Wow, this is absolutely fantastic. I love the position, the light on the bird and the detail on its "dark" side. It looks almost like a dinosaur.
