Southern Fire by Mashuto Southern Fire by Mashuto
EOS 60D| EF-S 10-22 @10 | 3.2s | f/11 | ISO 100 | Lee 0.9 HE GND

After a day or two on the north island of New Zealand, we packed our bags again and flew to Dunedin on the south island. We set out up the Otago Peninsula in search of some albatross or penguins.

Unfortunately we arrived too late in the day to take the tour to see the albatross, and the beaches where the penguins were was not very easily accessible.

On our way back to Dunedin, after feeling a bit like we missed out, we stopped at a beach by Harrington point to see if the black blob we saw out there was actually a sea lion. It was. While my dad was photographing the sea lion, I set my camera up by the water in front of some interesting pieces of seaweed surrounded by a ton of small shells.

Then I hoped that the evening would provide us with a nice sunset. I was not disappointed.

Edit 6-11-2012: Thought the resolution was a little low, so I uploaded a slightly higher res version, 900px on the long side. Enjoy!

Thanks so much! I used to do 900px on the long side, but found that the vertical images were too large for the web browser so I decided to do 750 px instead and just have been using it since.

I really think that size really doesn't do it justice I want to see this 2000px across.

Yea, well its a question of optimizing the image to make it fit properly in a browser and making it look good on dA. Plus I cant just give out a high resolution version. Im far from a pro, but I still gotta protect my IP.
