Title: Kangaroos
Photographer: Darren Stones
Location: Near Tom Groggin, Kosciuszko National Park, NSW, Australia
Date and time: Wednesday 23 April, 2008. 4:53pm.

“On this day I was travelling from Corryong to Jindabyne along the Alpine Way, and spotted these kangaroos in the Kosciuszko National Park. Earlier, I saw dozens of kangaroos in the distance and doubted I would get close enough to get a few shots. So, I continued driving south from Tom Groggin, and then the road began to head east towards Dead Horse Gap around Mt Kosciuszko – Australia’s highest mountain at 2229m. I was lucky to see the roos through the trees whilst driving and had to stop the car quickly and get within range. They detected me, but I got a few shots in the camera before the golden sunlight went behind a mountain. A brief moment caught. A great experience.” – Darren Stones

    Hehe nice sack on the bloke at the back. They sell them to tourists (or at least they used to) as coin purses. I used to camp a lot (every Christmas for about 8-9 years) at Geehi and the place was crawling with roos. And they were almost domesticated you could get that close to them.
