David takes us around the world with the sto­ries from some of his favourite im­ages Off Kaik­oura on New Zealand’s South Is­land lies an oceanic trench famed for at­tract­ing large num­bers of whales, dol­phins and seabirds. I got in tight here with the 10.5mm fish­eye to cre­ate a sense of be­ing in the thick of the ac­tion. This shot was taken from my car in early spring. He or she was chas­ing an­other hare, which veered off as they ap­proached, giv­ing me a fleet­ing op­por­tu­nity to cap­ture this head-on shot be­fore it too changed course. Last sum­mer I spent a few days in cen­tral Spain pho­tograph­ing sand­grouse. The large num­bers of stone curlews that came to drink soon af­ter dawn were an added bonus. Here, I con­cen­trated on the bird’s eye and its re­flec­tion.
