Gannets at Gwennap Head



















During my stay in Cornwall I drove out to Porthgwarra on two occasions as I love walking on the cliffs across Gwennap Head towards Lands End.On one of my visits I tried some flight shots of the numerous Gannets that were flying past and diving into the sea. I had very mixed results partly because they were hand held rather than from a tripod.I have posted the best three images here. If you look closely at the juvenile Gannet emerging from the sea you will see the small fish that he had caught.
