Petr says:

Visiting the Shetland Islands is always a unique experience for me. Cliffs whipped by strong winds and dramatic waves inhabited by thousands of headed seabird colonies. Many times I just sat there and looked in front of me without takking any picture. I just wanted to enjoy the moment with just me and pure nature. Thanks to that, I was able to perceive the life of bird colonies in a broader context. As the sun began to approach the horizon, a beautiful spectacle of light and shadow unfolded. Due to the latitude there, the sunset lasts indefinitely. After a long observation of a smaller Northern Gannet colony on a nearby cliff, I picked up the camera and tried to capture the atmosphere. Photographically, this is a very complicated scene, so I tried to get the maximum brightness and shadows in the photo that can still be worked with. I didn’t get to publish this photo until many weeks after my return. I had to feel something special again so that I could transfer the photo exactly as I had in mind. And I believe I succeeded, at least partly.
