Puffin Talk on Saltee Island Great, one of my favourite spots on earth. See this picture also on Unsplash or in my categorie Birds. The Saltee Islands are a pair of small islands lying 5 kilometres off the southern coast of County Wexford in Ireland. The two islands are Great Saltee (89 hectares) and Little Saltee (37 hectares). Both have been privately owned by the Neale family since 1943.
We took a walk in Bradgate park, Leicestershire to try out a new camera. The park is an enclosed deer park where the deer can roam free. The path ran along side some ferns, and as we reached it, a we saw a deer disappear into the greenery, with only it’s antlers showing. We moved in line with the deer, hoping it would look up, but only when my wife started making noises with her mouth did we get it’s attention. It looked up, and straight at us, and with full zoom I managed to capture a few pictures before it ran away. I love the colours in this shot, and how the ferns frame the deer’s head.
In 2013 I visited my relatives on Forrester Station in the Queensland outback for a week. One evening I helped drive a herd of young cattle back to their paddock. I noticed how amazing the golden sunset light looked through the dust clouds thrown up by the cattle. The next day I brought my camera along and managed to capture these incredible light conditions. To me that shot perfectly captures the earthy serenity I so love about the Australian outback, along with the warm and calm character of the people working that incredible landscape.
In the middle of nowhere in the northern part of the Yucatan peninsula, in a narrow gravel road with water on both sides, suddenly we saw a patch of flamingos eating and sun bathing. The temperature was really high, the sun in it’s zenith and the mosquitos were ferocius, but the magic of seeing these birds in the wild made us stop for more tha an hour to contemplate them. What a great experience watching them eat, fly, even fight with us being so near to them.
