CommentA mix of adult and young birds moulting into adult plumage. This was taken from a nearby hill as access to the beach is not possible. It has not been checked for land mines from the Falklands war days. Apparently the penguins aren't heavy enough to set off any mines that may be present. A good, safe roost for them!
EquipmentCanon 80D with EF 100-400mm Mark 2, handheld at 400mm
1/3200 sec, f8, ISO 800.
Initially processed in Canon DPP 4 to crop, adjust exposure and lighting and perform noise reduction (at about 50% of default values). A 16 bit TIFF file was created from the RAW DPP image and finished in PSE (Adobe Photoshop Elements v9) where further noise reduction was applied using Neat Image plugin for PSE. Sharpened after resizing for upload.
LocationGypsy Cove near Stanley, Falkland Islands (Unknown)
