Chasing Sea Eagles - Some Landscape Images from KI
I posted a few images from Kangaroo Island in South Australia several months ago, but couldn't wait to return. We'd seen from afar what might have been a sign of a sea eagle's roost or nest - white streaks down the wall of a sea cave - and decided to hike out there off track to check it out. The Easter holiday gave us the opportunity.
The island's Flinders Chase National Park is well known, but relatively few people hike far off track. West Cape is quite a remote area. All the attractive features are coastal and there's impenetrable vegetation anywhere back from the sea. Much of the shoreline is cliffs, but there are some beautiful beaches you can often have to yourself. It's dry, water-less, and hard and stony underfoot. But a most rewarding destination.
I took my trio of 16, 23 and 60 in a waterproof over-the-shoulder hard case, a 55-200 and an adapted FD300/4L in my backpack. Here are a few images from our walk. Hope you find them interesting. I'll post a few wildlife images in another thread. Sorry, no sea eagles. We did see an Osprey but he was gone before I could even contemplate a BIF. The streaks turned out to be limestone deposits that had formed on the dark lower level rocks of the cave wall when water permeated down from the limestone cap above. C'est la vie - it was an interesting day....
