I didn’t expect wild Australian sea lions to be so handsome and animated - but, the ones at Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island are a beautiful colour with striking markings, and seemed happy to flop and flap about the beach.
Their rest area is within a conservation area, and with no big predators, they rest and snooze carefree anywhere they can find a sunny and sheltered spot.
Two nights is nowhere near enough to see #kangarooisland - I’m going to have to come back soon and spend a few more days.
Maybe we’ll do a drive from Tassie, take the car across on the @sealinkki ferry from Cape Jervis and continue exploring!
Huge thanks to @itsworthashot for the shooting tips on my #Nikon too - to get this close to the sea lions I had to try with the D5100 - and Matt taught me how to do it. Cheers mate!
NASA astronaut Donald Pettit is arguably the guru of photography when it comes to making pictures from the International Space Station (ISS). TIME speaks with Pettit, who shares his insights into what astronauts face when they make pictures from the ISS, some of the mad-genius solutions he came up with during his time there, and his mind-bending thoughts on the implications of photographs taken in space.
