King Penguin

At 90cm (3 feet) in height, King Penguins are impressive and characterful birds. I spent a day at Volunteer Point in East Falkland in overcast, windy and rainy conditions, My reward came in early evening when the sun broke through for a few minutes, giving great light against a foreboding sky to the east. I selected a wide angle lens and lay down on the beach to emphasise the height of this magnificent penguin, placing its head against the sky.
