The guys over at Earthshots seem to like my puffin shots! I am particularly happy about this image. This photo was taken in the rain as you can see. It was not from a hide or from a car or anything. It was me and Mark Hamblin (The others gave up and went home when the rain started) on the ground on a remote island north of Scotland called Fair Isle. A rain-cover for the gear and we continued. Me, Mark and the birds. A very humbling and different experience.
Better late than never. Just wanted to say that visiting WildPhotos in London in mid October was hysterically inspiring. Some amzing photos and even more amazing stories to go with them. What about sitting in a small hide for 74 days to get 3!!! shots of a tiger? Well that is what Toshiji Fukuda did in eastern russia. Or photographing Lynx with camera traps and wait 9 months between decent shots? The shots were well worth the wait though 🙂
If you have never been to WildPhotos it is definitely worth a visit!
