2 Days of Bird Photography in Bad Conditions

Enjoying a touch of bushcraft and tackling windy conditions at the Rauðinúpur Cape

We spent two days of bird photography, mostly focusing on gannets and puffins at the Raudinupur Cape in north Iceland. It was windy and the distance was great from us to the gannets but it turned out to be more fun than the conditions indicated. We had a great time and the conditions really got better. Enjoying being out in nature surrounded by puffins was a great experience.
