Karen’s Pelicans of Lake Kerkini

Karen joined our Pelicans of Lake Kerkini trip in 2018, having missed out in 2017. She may not have gotten the snow, but she got some awesome light, coupled with fantastic opportunities for reflection shots.

With three boat trips & three shoreline feeds, there were plenty of opportunities to get some classic shots “in the bag” before trying some more creative photography.
In the image below, the clean backdrop coupled with the glass like waters of Lake Kerkini make this image. Were it not for the slight ripples in the water; you could flip the picture upside down & be none the wiser!

Our hotel is within walking distance of Lake Kerkini, making sunrise & sunset shots possible. The pink tones that Karen has captured in the photo below are glorious.
I always enjoy seeing client photos. Everyone has a different eye, & it’s great to see so many diverse takes on the same subject as it can often inspire people to try a different type of shot.

I hope Karen’s camera didn’t get wet as she got down low to get this shot! Look at the detail in the feathers, & the crazy hairdo.
We choose to visit the Pelicans of Lake Kerkini in January as the birds are in their full winter plumage. The white feathers & bright red pouch makes them more attractive to photograph but also helps the pelican to attract a partner!
