Taken on a Canon 5D Mk II with a 24-70 zoom lens at 70mm. Shot in Raw mode, exposure: f11 1/160. Processed in Apple’s Aperture, heavily cropped – but otherwise minimal post production processing.

These cormorants were skimming the waves below the cliffs near the ancient Dun Aengus stone fort, on Inishmore – the largest of the three Aran Islands in Galway Bay off Irelands West coast – while I was standing on the limestone pavement at the top of the cliff.

I have to admit that this was an opportunist shot. I was setting up the tripod for something else entirely … these four flew by and I just grabbed the camera and took a burst of shots – this one had the best combination of wing formations.

This photograph is part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card

    Wonderful! Beautiful image. Agnes xx

  • Agnes, Thank you. It was an opportunist shot. I was setting up the tripod for something else entirely … these four flew by and I just grabbed the camera and took a burst of shots – this one was the best combination of wing formations.

    this picture would be perfect to add to the ‘so blue’ group!! There’s also a challenge going on there that might interest you that involves the color blue in nature.

  • Table’, Thanks for the tip. I will go and have a look at that group and the challenge. George

    what a beautiful & STUNNING capture

  • Heather,
    Thank you. This was not my usual sort of shot I just happened to be in the right place when these guys passed. I see you have quite a collection of bird photographs too.
