Fotoeins Friday: lounging ‘roos on Kangaroo Island

25 August 2012.

My year-long RTW has taken me to Australia for a few weeks from east coast to south-central coast to the west coast. So far during the short time on Kangaroo Island in the state of South Australia, we’ve seen a lot of New Zealand fur-seals around Kingscote Jetty and Admirals Arch. But curiosity naturally kicks in: where are the kangaroos? As my friends from Adelaide have naturally anticipated this question, we make our way onto the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. While it’s best I don’t get too close and touch these (cute yet wild) creatures, there’s fencing to keep the bipeds from doing something stupid. I approach quietly to within metres of the marsupials, a safe respectful distance to small koalas dozing in trees and to big kangaroos reclining on the ground.

During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 25 August 2012 with the Canon 450D, 70-300 zoom, and the following settings: 1/800-sec, f/5, ISO200, and 165mm focal length (264mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a0y.
