Cool shots and very different to the shots I get to take here in Hertfordshire. We only get a few and they tend to stay over water. Looks like you are making the most of the fantastic Farne islands. Did you get any puffin?

Thanks.

These were taken quite a few years ago - I haven't been back to The Farnes in a while. I need to.

Yes - lots of Puffins :)

I really like these. The first and last ones in particular. Most have been hard to get the exposure right in these ones.

The tern nests are right at the side of the wooden walkway across the island - and they take off with a loud clicking sound as you approach. Then they attack - pecking you on the head (wear a strong hat) and back off to have a look. I walk towards them - camera ready and pre-focused at about 3m - then wait for the peck and look up and CLICK! A bit of fill-flash helps with the exposure.

Braver person than I! Must e an interesting take off how you find this method out! Can't imagine any photography friends fancy going on an African safari tour with you! It explain how you got this unique angle from though.
