Long time blog readers will likely remember my affection for the Puffins we photographed in Ireland last year.  I could not wait to get the opportunity to photograph them again in Iceland.  We were not disappointed.   It was a fun tractor/hay ride out to the Cape and then a short but steep walk to where we were treated to an abundance of Puffins! One participant took 777 pictures in that 2 hour time frame!! Here are a few of my favorites. I just love these little birds.



The guy on the left looks as though he thinks the one on the right is a bit odd….

    Beautiful scenery is one thing, but PUFFINS…that’s another. I am now very jealous. Great shots!

    These are beautiful John! I love the rich colors and beautiful scenery! I photographed them in Maine, many years ago, before I really knew what I was doing! I need to go back a revisit that area for a do-over 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed them Danielle. Yes, do go back with a long lens and have fun!

    Puffin on the left, “so you didn’t sleep again last night John?”
    Puffin on the right “no Dan your snoring again.”

    Garjuss! (As they say in Utah…) Love these birds, and your great photos of them. Also loved your 2012 workshop in the Palouse with Dan. Going to Iceland is a lifelong dream…who do you recommend as a tour guide/professional? Who did you go with? Are you planning to lead tours here in the future?

    Absolutely AWESOME! The fisher-Puffin image is impressive as well! Have FUN gong through your remaining 773 Puffinography images JB!

    I believe a friend of mine is your aunt, Jeremy Brown? I am a lover of Puffins and have traveled to Maine, Canada, Ireland and Iceland (Heimay Island) to see them. Your photos of these puffins are just gorgeous! Just wish I could take photos like these.

      Indeed Jeremy is my Mothers sister and thus my beloved Aunt.

    Great pics, John! I too love these birds. They are super fast flyers, and fun to watch as they tak off from water. Just had some time with them in Alaska on the ‘other coast’. I hope to see them in Iceland next year, too! Thanks for sharing these wonderful images.
