In March 2017 I visited the magnificen bird cliff at Hornøya together with my good friends Ragnvald Andersen and Åge Jakobsen, both clever nature photographers. Hornøya is situated 10 minutes boat ride north-east of Vardø, the oldest town in northern Norway and is the eastermost point in our country. From Vardø Harbour a boat takes birders and nature photographers to the island daily, depending on weather. We had planned to spend three full days at the island photographing the thousands of birds now gathering for their upcomming breeding season.  Late March is indeed a very good time for visiting this spectacular location! Common guillemots, razorbills, common shags, kittiwakes and Atlantic puffins were all numerous.  We had hoped for some snow and wind that would create sceneries for interesting motives.  Unfortunately the snow was sparse, only a few showers the first day.  However, the light shifted and all in all we managed to spend two and a half day at the island and to obtain several interesting shots.  From 2017 on most areas of Hornøya is restricted which means that you can onoly walk along selected routes. This does, however, not interfer much with photography, it is still possible to get very close to the birds and have spectacular meeting with the life of a bird cliff...
