This photograph was taken in Pacific Grove, California which is adjacent to Monterey. You really can’t see it here because the picture is reproduced so small here but in the rock formation in the back left there are hundreds of cormorants standing about.
Used a Nikon D2x and 80-200mm lens at 200mm to take the picture. Since it was backlight against really dark rocks there wasn’t a whole lot of color so I went for something a little different when processing it in Adobe Lightroom. Started of with one of the presets and worked with it a bit to get the light into a nearly monochromatic cool color temperature.
