This is another image from our recent trip up north to Kalbarri and Shark Bay on the Coral Coast.
Island Rock is on the stunning range of Coastal Cliffs just south of Kalbarri, this location truly shows just how insignificant we are when compared to the natural wonders on this planet. Standing on top of these cliffs really is an amazing experience and definitely not one to be missed should you be lucky enough to visit Kalbarri at any time.
While taking these photos we were also lucky enough to spot this pod of about 15 to 20 Dolphins swimming down below us, an absolutely incredible sight to see 😀 I quickly switched to my 70-200 and grabbed a few shots from the cliff top as they swam by.
From the image above you can see just how high up we were, this image is a crop covering approx 1/5th of the centre of the image taken with my 70-200 f4 L Canon lens and really shows the amount of detail and quality you can get from a DSLR these days. Maybe not quite the quality of a Phase One MF but then we don’t all want to lug around a mini monster all the time 😉
