Muriwai Gannet I

By Guernseydan  
Hello everyone!

Thought I'd start off me New Zealand series with a few wildlife shots of the Gannets from Muriwai Beach (West of Auckland).

A bit of a change for me and my usual work but I really enjoyed capturing these majestic animals in flight on a near perfect evening.

Thanks for looking!

Love it Dan, great exposure control.. Been doing a lot more wildlife stuff myself recently. Hope you had a great trip? BTW most of EPZ are in Scotland this weekend, so expect the site to be dead!! Wink

Thanks guys!

It was good to be shooting out of my normal comfort zone of landscapes!

I had no idea Phil, looks like this will slip into the ether quite quickly then!

Superb capture Dan. I really like the sea behind the Gannet, as opposed to sky. How did you get on in New Zealand? Looking forward to seeing the shots.
