Lake Kerkini is located in Northern Greece and is one of Europe’s top bird watching destinations. I’ve visited the area twice – January 2017 and January 2018 – on a photography holiday. On the first trip Lake Kerkini was frozen due to a really bad winter. This meant we were unable to go out on the lake and photograph the pelicans from a boat. I returned a year later to experience photographing the birds as they flew alongside the boat and landed on the water.
