18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Silhouetted Gull

The bay side of Stone Harbor, New Jersey is much less known than its more famous pristine ocean beaches. But for a photographer, the aquatic wildlife and spectacular sunsets are much more interesting than dunes and waves. This photo was shot while my son and I were taking an evening stroll along the western edge of this beautiful barrier island.
