Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, thirty-three

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

25 August 2012.

We’ve hopped on a ferry from mainland South Australia to Kangaroo Island. In the island’s southwest corner is an arch-shaped formation called Admiral’s Arch; from here, it’s over 3000 kilometres of open water to the Antarctic coast. Although rocks here are pounded by wave-action from the waters of the South Pacific, New Zealand fur seals and their pups are present in an out-of-bounds area set aside as a safe breeding area. This is where long-glass (zoom-lens) is handy, but from a very safe distance.

I made the image on 25 Aug 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/160-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 300mm focal length (480mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
