The beautiful Brittle Star photo was taken by Larry during our dive yesterday at Gasvær and forms a contrast to the darkness of the day above the water!
After Traena we travelled on towards the eagerly-awaited puffin colony at Lovund. Larry and I have tried and tried to take puffin photos over the years and have never been too successful. Puffins appear to be the most laid-back birds in existence, but they manage to evade the camera at the last second and our numerous photo attempts have joined our tail-less fish in the archives. After a long long day we could not locate a useful dock to tie up to in Lovund, so we're still motoring (endlessly) and will be for another hour or two. As for the rumoured puffins - we have not seen ANY on the water!
