Photo trip to the Saltee islands

We left Dublin early on Saturday to get to the Saltee islands:

The weather wasn’t great: fog and clouds and we weren’t particularly optimistic for the day.

Kilmore Quay, not a great morning as far as weather goes…

Land ho!

The clouds covered the sky almost all morning, until we got onto the islands.

Once we arrive though, the sun decided to show up and we had a beautiful (mostly) sunny day.

I admit I was afraid I couldn’t do much to get the birds and that they’d be too far away for my lenses… It turns out we could get within a few metres from them, we could almost touch them!

And there were so many…

So many birds… at least the story was different from the movie…

Good day, a few good photos 🙂

Still, there is something I don’t understand:

Why do puffins look so sad? 😦
