The last of the Dalmatian Pelican client images

A solitary Dalmatian Pelican floats serenely on the milky lake - photographed by Richard Coles during the 2016 NaturesLens Dalmatian Pelican Photography Holiday

This is, I think, the last series of Dalmatian Pelican images captured by clients on the January 2016 Dalmatian Pelican Photography Holidays, Richard Coles attended the second trip, that was lead by Richard Peters. It appears that Richard & the guests were blessed with mirror-like stillness on the lake for at least one of the mornings – resulting in some great captures as shown below, but first, above you can see one of Richard Coles’ images in the style that I personally like best, the ‘ethereal shot’, executed beautifully with the viewer’s eye being drawn to that flash of orange & the eye of the bird peeking out from it’s ‘crazy hairdo’.

Still more client images of the Dalmatian Pelicans

These came from Bob Pietrowski, who was on the trip that I had the pleasure of leading.

The way that the pelicans appear to waterski upon landing never ceases to amuse me & Bob caught the moment superbly.

Each of the three days will follow a similar format, in the morning we head out on the boat, travel down the lake, pick up fish for feeding, then feed the pelicans on the way back up the lake; the intent here is to draw the birds away from the shoreline, this is for a couple of reasons, firstly, so that the pelicans fly in towards us for some great flight and landing shots, secondly, to ensure that we have nice clean backgrounds.

Following this boat trip, we return to the hotel for lunch in the early afternoon: at about 3pm we head out for the afternoon shooting session, we drive down the edge of the lake to the location where we perform and capture images of a shoreline feed, we shoot literally until the light is gone. When the light is no more, we return to the hotel, clean up & have an evening meal.

The cost is £949 per person for 2017, with no single supplement & everyone having their own room – no need to share!

Although bookings have only just opened, the trip is already half full, so book a place now.
