No Zoom

6 07 2013

The Látrabjarg cliffs are home to an unfathomable number of birds. This westernmost point of Iceland (and Europe) is really a line of several cliffs, 14 kilometres long and up to 441 km high. Safe from foxes, the birds are fearless, and provide stunning photographic opportunities from close range.  The cliffs are home to millions of birds, including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots and razorbills. It is vital for their survival as it hosts up to 40% of the world population for some species. The puffins are particularly tame and are the ones frequenting the grassy, higher part of the cliffs.

The Lundi seem to pose for the pictures.

It is so easy to get the perfect picture... bird photography for dummies, you might say.
