Seabird in contrasting colors

This tiny little tern perched on a decaying fishing boat stands out against the strongly contrasting cobalt sea and white rocky shingle.

The contrasts of colorings and shadings along this sea strand are so dramatic; the ivory-white of the rocky shingle below the fishing village on the almost-deserted island of Fårö shines out against the deep blue of the intensely-hued Baltic on a Spring day last June. Meanwhile, a white and black seabird pauses on a once-bright wooden boat whose turquoise and aquamarine paint is now only a memory.
