Doubtful Sound, New Zealand - interesting effect

Recommended Posts

This is Doubtful Sound in the morning. Doubftul Sound is on the Tasman Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, and is a transitional area between the Tasman Sea, and more polar regions. The area is dominated by interesting rainforest vegetation due to huge amounts of rain. Think - Jurassic Park.

 

CP-5000 by itself, ISO 100. No retouching. I like the greys on this. That "tunnel" of light just happened.

Nice shot!

 

For those who don't know, this area gets around 8 meters (about 25 feet) of rainfall a year, the top 20 or 30 feet of water is fresh with salt water below that, which has very interesting effects on what is living there.

We got a chance to see those monster bottlenose dophins that live there, the ones that hit about 13'. Apparently they are specially adapted to the cold by getting that big and are the coldest region bottlenoses around. Also apparently they are potentially going to be declared a subspecies.

Wow - nice shot!

 

Didn't get to see any of the dolphins you mentioned - they sound like monsters.

 

We were fortunate with the weather tho...
