This skittish little fellow was shot on a rocky outcrop of the Robberg Peninsula near Plettenberg Bay in South Africa in early January. I wanted to be sure that I had sufficient depth of field to keep his whole body and the rock he was sitting on in focus and chose an aperture of f/11. The background was quite far away and was fairly well blurred but there were distracting brown patches. These were cloned out and a fair bit of gaussian blur was then applied.
