Lake Erie Abstracts

With a heavy cloud layer, the sunset was not very dramatic, but there was a little color in the sky. A large flock of gulls took off and I captured them in flight with a slow shutter speed. The motion created an interesting texture over the background. These photos look like multiple images layered in Photoshop, but they are each made of one image. Cropping and color adjustments were completed in Lightroom and give the photos a painterly quality.
