Little Gull Landscape
Little Gull Island is about four miles to the west of Fishers Island, New York. We had been shooting earlier in the evening at Race Rock lighthouse and took a short ride to photograph at Little Gull. It was early spring, a good time to visit because during the summer the island is a bird sanctuary and can be tricky dealing with certain species who get very upset when you're near their roosting nests. The moon was much brighter than when I normally like to shoot, but not so bright to obscure the stars.
