Cape Gannets on Malgas Island

It can be really challenging to find innovative ways to photograph a subject, to capture images that makes us think a little harder about the subject or teach us something new.

After spending a few days on Malgas Island in the West Coast National Park, photographing the Cape Gannet colony, I was getting frustrated with trying to find this"innovation".

It was only after looking at my images from the trip over and over again, trying to choose the "picks" that I realised my fascination with the Malgas's eyes. Their piercing blue-eyed stare as they glide effortlessly past your camera. Their ability to pick out their mate amongst hundreds of other birds from a distance as they prepare to land back in the colony. I was clearly focused on the eyes!

This portfolio of images will put you into the "eye" of the Malgas.
