Albatross, Steeple Jason, Falkland Islands, Day to Night™, 2017
Photographing on Steeple Jason was an extraordinary experience. The island is rarely touched by man. Albatrosses roost by the sea, sharing the grassy incline with penguins. While these albatrosses sit on their nests, warming and protecting their chicks, their partners soar above the ocean, swooping down to catch prey. I took 926 photos in 26 hours and used about 80 to make this image.

لقد كان التصوير على جزيرة ستيبل جيسون من أروع ما يكون، فنادراً ما تطأها قدم الإنسان. تجثم طيور القطرس على الشاطئ وبجانبها طيور البطريق على العشب الأخضر. وفيما تجلس هذه الطيور فوق أعشاشها لتدفئة الفراخ وحمايتها، يحلّق الشريك الآخر في السماء فوق المحيط بحثاً عن فريسة ينقض عليها. تطلب هذا العمل التقاط 926 صورة خلال 26 ساعة واستخدمت حوالي 80 منها لإنتاج هذه الصورة.
