A Blissful Friend

A blissful friend from the Látrabjarg cliffs in Iceland western fjords, an amazing and peaceful place where you can meet these really small birds on a very short distance (this picture was taken with a macro lens of 105mm). A little bit of softness on such a grey time...

A BIG THANK YOU TO TimberClipse and Kaz-D for the DD ! ;-)

While this photo wasn’t the first taste of the originality inspired interpretations – bright colours that tapped funk up for its number before forgetting to call it back; snapping nature lovers unleashed before the world caught up with the parlance – it was the most perfect distillation of everything that’d come before it.

The photo is one of many artists capable of crafting a widescreen and wholly organic-sounding world. Sweet combination of popping bokeh and almost vivid tones gives the viewer a positive summer atmosphere.

And that, in essence, is what the photo is all about: carry on or abandon the dream? Even watching with eye half-cocked the answer sounds resolute.

I've always wondered what that orange thing is. The thing that looks like a brain on the side of the beak

We did try to take picture of puffins on Grímsey island few years ago but never managed to get so close. You have perfect focus here, sir!
