300,000 Penguins, South Georgia Island

The King Penguin colony on the Salisbury Plain of South Georgia Island. There are well over 300,000 penguins in this synth (The weird pattern on the hillside is all penguins - be sure to zoom in close). There are also a couple thousand Antarctic Fur Seals

The oringinal version of this synth, while pretty good, was really just me seeing how well something like this would synth. I didnt take the time to color correct the photos, and I didnt add as many images as I could have. Consider this the cannonical version.

This is incredible! What camera/lens were you using?

Debra - I was using a mix of lenses with 2 Canon 40Ds. The detail shots were taken with a Canon 400DO and the wider angle shots were mostly from a Canon 24-105. I think there are probably a few with the Canon 100-400 as well. If you really want specifics you can find some of the photos from this synth on my still photography website here: http://tonyernst.com/gallery.aspx?gallery=ant05 . You can find all the gear/exposure info below each image when you click on them.
