I spent a week­end on Greece’s tran­quil Lake Kerkini pho­tograph­ing the al­most pre­his­toric-look­ing Dal­ma­tian pel­i­cans. On this par­tic­u­lar af­ter­noon the sky was over­cast with a blan­ket of cloud, and this pro­vided the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to lie flat to the shore­line, with my lens al­most in the wa­ter, and cap­ture the birds against a crisp white set­ting, with just the flash of red from their beaks to add a dash of colour.
