    wow – great shot!
    We too have gannetries and oh, boy i hope you didn’t get too much shampoo, lol! fabulous work!!!

  • Thanks Nat. I got away lucky this time. Although a few did fly only a meter or so above my head but I guess I wasn’t disturbing them or making them nervous.

    oh, cool – yay, especially during the breeding season :))
    those B52 of the sea as we call them locally are so wonderful on the nest.
    We have a 181m rock, Noss, just east of Lerwick, we call “gannet city”!
    It’s got to be appreciated from seal level… Terrific views from this level :)).

  • Hi Nat. But I have to admit i wasn’t so lucky with gulls and pigeons. But maybe that’s why as I’m about to turn 50 I still have a full head of hair :)

    This gannet colony is located at Cape St Mary’s, at the southwestern tip of Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula.
    Here are links to some of my other photos taken there:

    Well first off I love the diagonal composition of the shot. Second great clarity on the foreground with the birds nesting/resting, and I love the misty portion with the bird soaring away. Excellent point of view, seems very high up, and overall a really pleasing image that conveys a sense of liberty.

  • Thank You Joanne for breaking down why you like this photograph it helps me appreciate and understand photography more. The birds are actually nesting on a cliff edge separate from where I am. It is a amazing felling having these birds flying over your head, they have a wing span up to 2 meters!
