Puffin and Flowers.jpg | A beautiful day on Skomer Island. MK… | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Skomer Island is a wonderful location , if you can get there. All day visitors have to rely upon a 15 minute boat trip which is of course subject to the weather conditions. An earlier trip this year to the location proved to be in vain due to the wind conditions but unperturbed we ventured out again and this time the weather was just perfect.

Flickr Image with 6K of Hits in 24 Hours

I enjoy Flickr and I have had a few images that have been very popular. The magic of high volume Flickr views for me is closely linked with being invited to post an image on Flickr explore. Many have written about the type of image that meets the requirements for such an invitation so I won't attempt to do that here. I certainly do not set out to meet any requirements for such an invitation but have had two images that have have received such an invitation. Today, one such image seemed to appeal to so many people that I was able to watch the number of views increase in real time, at the time of writing the image and been selected as a favourite of 140 people and was rising. I love making an image that appeals to so many people and like most people I get a buzz from its success.
