Snow Buntings













the sunny start soon deteriorated and then it was ISO 800 with minimum depth of field so impossible to get the whole flock in focus in fact usually just 2-5 birds were in the focus depth and their position in the frame was seemingly random! I was trying to capture the vibrance of the excitable flock with the dune vegetation in the shot; one thing that was immediately obvious is the huge volume of human detritus on the beach pervading every shot -- surely at a popular tourist destination a beach clean up would not be too much trouble --
