I know that publishing here on a more or less regular basis my new photos from my own adventures in the wild world is appreciated by some. But I am also asked to come back to older photos or to highlight some of the pictures I prefer. So, I decided to create a kind of…

Zero digital noise photography

Thick-billed murre (Uria lomvia, Guillemot de Brünnich). Black-legged kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla, Mouette tridactyle). Prince Leopold Island, Nunavut, Canada. August 2016.
