Nature’s remarkable design.
Iceland has some of the largest gannet colonies on the planet. One such colony is at the Skoruvíkurbjarg cliff in Langanes. The elevated vantage point here is ideal for observing these large and graceful seabirds in flight.
Bird photography is not in my wheelhouse, but tomatoes were dealt and chutney was made.
Although I didn’t get to see it myself, the video attached at the bottom of this post shows the astounding sight of the gannets dive-bombing for food.

Beautiful birds in flight.
ohhh! Bird and the sea… fantastic photographs…thank you
Thank you, all.
Trademark nature clip with the unavoidable ‘Bambi component’ to make kids realise that life is hard. Thanks ‘Rajanjab’ for beautiful pics, and again Wikipedia for great info.
Stunning display of complementary colors between the gannets and the sea. I must say that I chuckled a bit seeing you at the cliff. We’re basking in heat and humidity, a far cry from the weather in Iceland.
Thank you for these beautiful photos.
Stunning pictures, Rajan! I say avian photography is very much in your wheelhouse, with a generous helping of tomato chutney in tow.
Rajanbab, Your pics are beautiful and that video is striking. thanks
