The Arctic Terns against the grey skies have a superb look and quality to them - Superb

It was clearly a great trip, well worth the travelling efforts Those shots with the wings up are very dramatic and you're very much in there with the action. You've made the most of the light which seems to have been reasonable despite the grey skies ... you have managed to get a good contrast range throughout (wings bright and still good solid blacks). No doubt after not shooting so much lately you must have been very chuffed !

Great shots again Alan... And they say Pentax cameras are slow to focus on moving subjects.. So an extra pat on the back...

Hi Alan,

just enjoyed them all on your Flickr gallery. I particularly like the Shag close up and the Guillemot touchdown. it proves how interesting such birds are in detail and in behaviour. Thanks for sharing, always an inspiration to me.

Really good again... love the black, white, and red on grey... very striking colour palette... my own personal favourite of these is no 7... there's a "potential energy" in this that's very striking, but they're all tippy top...

Best
Bill

Excellent photos. Better than anything I got last year, annoyingly with the same gear!

Hmm probably should start editing some it at some point soon!

Now there's logic for you. I never gave that a thought.

Thanks for that.

Best regards
