fantastic shot, there's so much going on it's amazing! Reminds me a bit of the London Stock Exchange...and is certainly alot different from the Salisbury Plain near where i live! Enjoy Syria, looking forward to your posts.

Before I will write a comment to this photo a one simple question: how many penguins are on the picture? ;>
And now more serious ;) I like the POV and composition which clearly show how huge the colony of this species is. Very informative note too!
Have a nice day and fruitfull travel to Syria!

An amazing shot! You managed to show so much detail in each penguin. Wonderful colors in that crowd - the yellow stands out.
Have a good trip!

Looks like the congregation of well attired gentlemen, James :-).
Despite the large number of these Penguins in view, there is a fine pattern to the entire composition.
Thanks for sharing this interesting picture.

Hi James, very cool shot of these King Penquins. The group shot works very well. Very nice repetition of the colour and formal detail of these guys.

Good luck for your Siria trip! A great reasn to go there :) Have you ever considerred Romania, because i see you don't have any shots from here either? ;)
Anyway, another splendid shot from you! 137 lovely King Penguins!............... :)) you didn't really think i counted them, did you? :)) Just playing...
Anyway, this really is a beauty and a marvelous set of contrasts and colors.
I'm sure it's nothing compared to actually being there, but for us who are still to see them with our own eyes, it's great!
Cheers and TFS

What an amazing photo. I've never seen that many penguins at one place, well actually I've never seen them in wild. I also have never seen such a frame filling composition of this lovely birds. The wonderful thing about such a photo is that you keep looking at it, discovering new things each time. Have lots of fun in Syria, and I am looking forward to some wonderful photos
