Rockhopper Landscape

Rockhopper Landscape, Saunders Island, Falkland IslandsWith my 15 millimeter fisheye lens, I was able to capture the three main groups of rockhopper penguins that live in this colony on Saunders Island in the Falkland Islands. It was great to have this place completely to myself when I visited in October of 2014.

    Very nice – what a beautiful place! Can you blame the Rockhoppers for colonizing there?

    A fish eye lens is not a lens you often use, but when you have the right composition, the perspective of this lens really delivers in a big way. Fantastic shot!
