12 mesmerizing images of the Dalmatian Pelicans of Kerkini

Beautifully reflected in the waters of Kerkini a quartet of the Pelicans photographed by Tony Berry during one of the 2019 NaturesLens Dalmatian Pelicans of Lake Kerkini Photography Tours

Earlier this year, Tony attended our Dalmatian Pelicans of Kerkini photography holiday. 2019 saw the return of snow & ice to the region so he faced some challenging weather conditions but thanks to our resourceful boatman, Tony came back with some stunning photos. He has very kindly sent in 12 beautiful images for us to share with you.

I can honestly say that I never get tired of looking at the images that our guests send into us. Everyone has a different eye & a different take. It’s just great to see so much creativity.

Tony told us that “the NaturesLens Dalmatian Pelicans of Kerkini was a very well organised trip. Perhaps my most memorable moments of the trip were when the pelicans were resting silently in the calm waters of the lake, in the soft evening light”. I think it would be fair to say that Tony was blessed with some stunning light while he was in Greece. The colours in his reflection shot of a quartet of pelicans are simply sublime!

Meet our boat skipper Vasilis. He is incredibly helpful & has an extraordinary empathy with the pelicans. Everyone always comments about how passionately he cares for their well-being.

Lake Kerkini froze over for the second time in the history of our running trips there. Lucky for us, Vasilis rallied the local fishermen who helped to break the ice in some areas so that our guests were able to get out onto the lake.
Our Dalmatian Pelicans of Greece photography holiday offers plenty of opportunities to capture gorgeous portrait images as well as birds in flight & action shots.  Our hotel is less than 500m from the lake which means that everyone can go back to the hotel in between sessions to warm up & enjoy some lunch. Just what you need after a brisk, cold morning of pelican photography!
Thanks again to Tony for sharing his beautiful images with us. We’ll no doubt see you again soon.
