Two words which go together perfectly are ‘great’ and ‘northern’. I hear there are Great Northern Divers in Brixham harbour again, so decide to have a day out in beautiful sunshine. I see one almost immediately amongst the hubbub of the kayaks and it’s soon much further away.
Here’s one searching for crabs. Luckily that’s something I’ve never had to do.
I watch them for a couple of hours, trying to get a shot with the right light, at the right angle, with the right pose. I get a very wet sock trying to get low to the water. This one didn’t find a single crab.
I’m left with memories of a beautiful day, mediocre photographs and a wet sock.
