Chanonry Point, Fortrose, Scotland
Better known for viewing the bottlenose dolphins close to shore in the summer months. I had instead had gone in search of shore birds I noticed further down the coastline. I had just purchased the Olympus 50-200mm so was keen to see how it would handle handheld.
There were dunlin following the incoming tide looking for food. Shorebirds is something I have not really pursued so I approached it with caution to test it’s tolerance levels. It was reasonably approachable so I settle down on the sand and fired off a few shots. It was beautiful warm evening light, folk must have been wondering what on earth I was doing when everyone else is photographing the dolphins but I was pleased with my shots.
