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
