Nice images John. I think I recognise the Dunedin Lighthouse. Did you get any shots of the albatrosses that live around there?


Thanks Wayne,  yes that is just out of Dunedin, and yes, I did get a shot of an albatross and it's right in the frame of  No 2!

Seriously though, no I didn't get any really good shots of the birds, those ones of the lighthouse were taken from the deck of the cruise ship as we were heading out in the evening, and the Albatross colony was mostly in the shade with not many birds visible.  The lighthouse shots are not bad for 300mm handheld on a moving vehicle doing 17 knots or so huh?

I've got a a bunch of shots of an albatross that was tracking the boat a few hundred meters away, but the light was not very good.  I'd have to crop to about 100%, quite a lot of them are sharp and usable, but they just don't look very appealing.  If there's interest I'll post a couple.
