Heading North for Seabirds - Taking a Wider View

Before I get on to the flight, diving and swimming shots of the gannets, I thought I would post a few photos taken with a wide angle lens (17-85mm). This was a bit of experiment which I tried to give a different perspective as the birds would allow such a close approach. I decided on a low angle although it was not to pleasent laying in amongst the guano and various debris of a ganent colony.

Wow - they let you get that close? That's something. And yeah - sometimes we have to get down to it, to get our shots.
I just wish some more people would come to see your work - it's more than worth it!
Cheers, Klaus

Thanks Klaus. For these shots it was about as close as you could ever want to get to a gannet.
