Niall Benvie - Great black backed gull, Iceland


Well, the gull here is an incidental player; the picture is really all about the feeling of the wild mountain landscapes that we find in Iceland. For many years, like most nature photographers, I engineered most of my wildlife photos with bait or something else to shift the odds in my favour. Now, I am more interested in recorded that moment when our lives crosses with that of our subject; it’s more spontaneous, authentic and visceral. And I think that is what people react to more.
