Showcasing some of Jayne’s Puffins of Skomer Island

Jayne is becoming a bit of a veteran of NaturesLens photography holidays, that’s a compliment in case you were wondering! In June she joined the Skomer Puffins Photography Holiday for three days & nights staying on the island. We have it on good authority that as with her other ventures with us, the weather though challenging was not something to get in her way, so here we are pleased to showcase some of Jayne’s Puffins of Skomer Island …

If you are wondering the weather extremes  experienced by Jayne referred to above, range from freezing temperatures capturing images of the Dalmatian Pelicans in Greece, to sweltering 40 degree plus heat in India, cool jungles also in India, & the wet welsh weather that Skomer delivered!

WANT TO CAPTURE YOUR OWN IMAGES OF THE PUFFINS OF SKOMER ISLAND?

Skomer is one of the most important locations for the colonies of Atlantic Puffins in Europe & it is easy to see why. For photographers keen to add puffin images captured in different conditions & lighting to their wildlife portfolio, a three night stay on the island provides an abundance of opportunities. Our focus during the NaturesLens photography holidays are the comical puffins, which can be seen on Skomer in abundant quantities from mid-May through to July.

Kevin Morgans is leading our puffins of skomer photography holiday for the dates of July 15 – 18, 2017, the holiday still has spaces available & costs £499 for the 3 night stay on the island!
