Cou­ples Jon A Juarez Gar­cia, Ger­many While tak­ing this pho­to­graph on the Nor­we­gian is­land of Hornøya, time seemed to come to a halt for a few sec­onds amid the cries of thou­sands of sea birds and the thun­der of the waves against the cliffs. I had stretched out flat on the snow, at per­ceived tem­per­a­tures as low as -20°C (-4°F), when these four guille­mots as­sumed this per­fect pose, while the rest cir­cled in the air among the rocks in an un­pre­dictable chaos. Snow and thick fog also con­trib­uted to the suc­cess­ful cre­ation of this im­age. Nikon D700, 24-70mm f/2.8, 1/2500 sec, f/6.3, ISO800
