Photographer's Note

I didnt see a damn penguin on the island at all, it was a major tourist attraction but spending a weekend there all I saw was terrible weather and rain, and more rain. Maybe I should have looked harder for the elusive penguins, or asked a local for directions and advise.

This photo here was taken after considerable difficulty due to the strong winds lashing the rocks and beach, the constant spray of the waves and surf, and the treacherous slippery surface of the rocks I was standing on. I thought I would eventually smash a lens or two from falling over but perseverance paid off, for a few lousy photos:) But photography is sometimes more than just taking the photo, its about getting there first.
