What a fantastic morning with blue skies, sunshine and a flat calm sea! What could be better than a photographic boat trip below Bempton Cliffs? It was a "diving Gannets" trip, but you just have to capture the other seabirds as well! Now, I am not good on the sea and my memories still travel back to my mid teenage years when I embarked on a fishing trip from Great Yarmouth and spent the whole time "chumming" the fish with my vomit! The last thing I wanted was a repeat performance, so it was with some nervousness that I booked my place with Steve Race, Yorkshire Coast Nature - LINK. I need not have worried and we had an almost perfect trip! The movement of the boat took some getting used to, as did my canon 100-400 zoom lens which had not been out for well over 12months. I did my best taking over 800 images, but with blurred and missed shots I ended up with a workable 130images! My reactions have slowed tremendously but I did manage some fantastic images of sea water splashes!
This was my first time on the water below Bempton Cliffs and images from below, looking up can be seen here - LINK
