Fergus getting a shot of a seal at Red Rocks, Wellington
Yes the horizon is crooked 🙂
Is it the end of the world?
This is from last weeks 4WD mission out past Redrocks.
I am assuming that this around about the SS Penguin sank in 1909
I like the fact that its a bit crooked. Not sure if it was built like this on purpose to break the waves that come from predominately one direction or if the person who put it there was permanently drunk.
Nikon F5 with 80-200 f2.8 set to f22, ND8 and ND6 Graduated filters, 2 second exposure
Apparently its best not get stuck too close to the water when the tide is coming in and there is no way to get another vehicle close enough to pull you out.
I figured that there were enough people pushing so I could stand back and take photos
Best quote of the day from the boy on the left of the frame as the Hilux drove away up the beech “Hey wait for me, Im just a kid”
Being one of the few days of the year when shops are actually closed the boys from the shop went on a 4WD mission round Redrocks… We must have had at least 9 cameras between 4 people and the boot of the Landrover was almost filled with camera equipment.
All of the female seals have migrated for the winter so only the singe males are left and with no female around the seals are reasonably placid as long as you dont get too close or get between them and the water.
