I kept returning to this spot, night after night, sometimes it was raining or misty and other nights were simply ideal though a tad chilly …

This spectacular natural rock arch, sculpted by weathering and erosion from the sea over thousands of years is well worth visiting. Here you can also observe a colony of New Zealand Fur-seals as they feed, swim and laze on the shore platform below. If you cannot see them you can sure smell them ! Admirals Arch can be easily reached along a boardwalk at Cape du Couedic.,Kangaroo Island, South Australia

    Sometimes returning to the same spot waiting for nature to work with us is a must…it worked out in this shot. Kudos for fighting the cold.
