PRINT NOW ON SALE: Touch Down

  TOUCH DOWN:  Bass Rock is an imposing rocky island rising over 100m sheer from the Firth of Forth, Scotland. It is estimated to host about 150,000 Northern Gannets nesting in close proximity to the cliffs.  This gannet was slowing down in flight in order to negotiate a safe landing on a cliff face nesting site.
