I wanted to show the bigger picture at the Herring Run because it really is an event. It's an almost impossible scene to capture for so many reasons - wrong light no matter what time of day, too many people and way too many seagulls.
The hardest part about the previous seagull shots I've taken wasn't capturing a seagull eating herring. It was capturing just ONE seagull without getting feet, wings, heads, etc. of others in the frame. It's like taking a photo of one person at the mall at Christmas.
