2009 favourite

I’ve been after this piercing eye for years and hundreds of discarded photographs. This year I finally captured it.
And that’s why this is my 2009 favourite shot. A Gannet carrying weed for its nest at the Muriwai Gannet colony.

  3. One can see how this would have been a Holy Grail for you, Lachezar. The result is astounding in clarity, in colour, in composition.

    Bravo!

  4. Oh my goodness, what a stunning shot. I’m bowled over. That eye is amazing – well the whole shot is amazing. Bravo.

  5. Excellent gannet shot! Great detail in the whites and as you say, that piercing look. A picture of speed and focus to be proud of.
