Zoltán Gergely Nagy - Gannet Dive

Elegant, powerful and lightning fast - just some words that could describe a fishing gannet, Europe's biggest seabird.

On this particular afternoon in Scotland, the North Sea was strangely peaceful, there were only a few lonely gannets diving after fish and breaking the waves near Dunbar harbour. These birds have mesmerized me right from my first encounters with them, so it was deeply impressive to see them fishing in these calm waters.

I wish you all Happy Holidays, and a great New Year!
