GAN­NET PREEN­ING

Bird Watching (UK) - - Uk Bird Sightings -

This was taken by pho­tog­ra­pher Craig Jones at Her­maness, at the north­ern tip of Unst, Shet­land, and home to thou­sands of nest­ing Gan­nets in the sum­mer. Craig has been a pro­fes­sional eth­i­cal wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher since 2009. He said: “Over a few days I no­ticed a pair had made a nest in a small ledge and the back­ground was dark. I un­der­ex­posed my cam­era to gain this ef­fect, which just dark­ened the al­ready black back­ground, which was an­other cliff which had no sun­light fall­ing onto it. “I grew up learn­ing about na­ture and I now use the skills and knowl­edge I gained, along with many other skills, to cap­ture images of wildlife. I also like con­ser­va­tion work and want my pho­to­graphs to give a voice to, and high­light the plight of, an­i­mals that are in need.” You can see other ex­am­ples of Craig’s work by vis­it­ing his web­site, link below. craigjoneswildlifepho­tog­ra­phy.co.uk
