Lake Wairarapa is situated in the southern part of the North Island, New Zealand. It is home to many species of birds. Many more stop for a visit, on their way to somewhere else. If you get up early enough, amazing sunrises can be seen.

When I first started out, the one photographer who inspired me the most, was and still is, National Geographic photographer, Jason Edwards. Apart from the great work he does, I always remember the advice he gave, on one of his shows. As much as possible, get it right in the camera, don’t over process your images and don’t spend too much time processing them. (not exactly word for word, its been a while).

Fur Seals and Sea Lions are different from other seals because they have external ear flaps and hind flippers which rotate forward, which in turn, allows them to move very quickly on land and yes, they will give you a run for your money, so it pays to be situationally aware.
