Last weekend was supposed to be a weekend of fast action and quick reflexes with a boat trip booked to photograph the diving gannets from the sea at Bempton Cliffs. Unfortunately, the 30mph westerly winds put a quick stop to that and the boat trip was cancelled for safety reasons. Up to the top of the cliffs it was then!
With Bempton Cliffs being an extremely popular location with photographers, I wanted to take some more unusual images and this is one I really liked of two Gannets in a courtship display against the rising sun.

We have lift off…
I had been watching this individual very carefully and following its movements. I knew i wanted an image of it in flight so increased my ISO to 3200 which gave me a shutter speed of 1/6400 which was enough to freeze the moment of take off. All that I needed then was to have the luck to capture a nice wing angle which this image does nicely.
