St. Bee's Head Cormorant

By SocksAndStuff
Just back from another trip to Cumbria, such a beautiful place. I was quite pleased with this Cormorant as the wind on the coastal path was near enough to blow you down, and the light was quite low too.

My lovely 90+ year old father-in-law Clive died this morning, after being very ill for some time. I am dedicating this shot to his memory as he would have been really happy that we took our holiday as planned and didn't hang around morbidly waiting for him to die. He would have encouraged us to enjoy every moment of this life while we can. Thank you Clive, you are now sleeping the perfect sleep xxx

I'm very late to this party. This cormorant BIF is exceptional in addition to your camera skills. Brava Maestra!
