Gibraltar, top of the rock. This guy did not flinch an inch when I stuck my lens in his face.

The title comes from the somewhat whimsical idea that these creatures were once referred to as “sea eagles”…

Originally from Manchester, UK, now living in Warsaw, Poland and Tarifa, Spain, but also travelling frequently.

I currently use a Nikon D300 with Sigma lenses (18-250, 150-500, 105) and, for travel, a Sony NEX-7 with Sony (18-55, 55-210) and Tamron (18-200) lenses.

Enough of the boring stuff… on with the show.

    Yes wow.. what were your shooting details

  • Hi Picketty! Thanks for your comment – sorry for my delayed response but I was travelling last week.

    The settings were 1/320, F10, ISO 200 using a Sigma 70-300 @ 300 (macro mode) on a Nikon D70s.
