We were lucky to get to land on our planned trip to Bass rock. This is one taken from the boat on the way there during the 'chumming.'
So engrossed was I that I forgot to take any video
28mm @ f9
Tremendous composition from a moving boat. Great action shot Melanie, just great.
great timing Melanie stop the action
Fantastic capture. Very well done.
very good capture
Thanks Dougie, I was really chuffed to get the rock and lighthouse in the BG, guess I was lucky more than once that day.
Excellent action shot....
Superb image Melanie.
I really like this Melanie, but I have an edit to suggest (although the purists will hate me for it).
If you remove the 2 birds from the top right corner the dynamic of the image takes on a new feel and helps give emphasis to a natural diagnal.
Just a thought - take it or leave it - I'm still jealous!
Very good shot with the gannets , especially with Bass rock and lighthouse in the B/G very envious , it deserves more votes & views
If you fly in over Turnhouse, this rock is like a landmark - telling every one - "you're coming home".
A very energetic busy photo with the one at the front getting most of the glory with its fantastic colouring i do however agree with sherlob im jealous too.kaz
My goodness me! Stunning work.
Fantastic movement. Well caught!
ive given this my star of the week as it trully feels like im there, stunning clarity.
Brilliant shot. Great timing.
I've looked at many, many images taken of the gannets here but I think this is the first one that makes me really feel I am there with every elements that shouts Bass Rock present (with the dominant gannet just being the icing on the cake).
You've done really well to get this looking so sharp and well put together.
very good capture and all the birds fill the frame nicely including the one in the fg too. G
They are such fantastic birds!
And you've got them in a fantastic setting too!
What a great shot. Love everything about it.........Sandy
A fantastic shot, well worthy of a medal. I aspire to take shots like this.
A superb shot and an excellent combination of the sharp action of the birds and the landscape.
Excellent. I am usually hanging on to the side of the boat and unable to take any photographsbut you have produced a wonderful image.
The trip you took is high on my wish list - I can only echo the comments of those who say they're jealous (and rightly so).
A superb capture of an event one has to experience in order to understand the difficulty of getting the rock and the action at the same time. The foreground Gannet, sharp as a tack, makes this image especially magical.
WOW< I hae only ever seen video footage of this, this is a stunner.
Glad to make it 100 Melanie.Superb composition!
Fantastic shot, Melanie. My favourite British sea bird. I love being out on the ocean with these magnificent birds plunging from the skies as they feast on the shoals of mackerel just below the waves.
Well done on the HC.
just totally outstanding M
Excellent action. Simply outstanding. Paul.
