December Beach Break

I shot this as I walked back through the holiday park to our cabin after my fall.
My camera had taken a good dose of sand and I extended the zoom fully and kept shooting every few seconds to keep it from retracting. I have a heap of shots of the ground, fence railings etc. But then, there were three kangaroos (and a rabbit!) grazing around the caravans and utility block.. I couldn't compose anything so this was strictly a point and shoot.

My husband did a great job of cleaning the sand from my camera and it still works.

I can't stop looking at those big back feet, lol. They are huge! Glad to hear that your husband was able to save the camera.

Minor setbacks often make us stronger. I once dumped my camera, lens first, into the foamy sand along the edge of the bay and it still works. Kangaroo's fur has a really nice texture.

It's a cliché, but sometimes good things come from accidents. With your random pictures you probably have more than a couple good ones that you would never have shot under ordinary circumstances. Kangaroos fascinate me and this shot lets me get up close and personal with one.

the disadvantages of an extending zoom lens .. :(
and great that the camera is ok ..
anyway .. i'm loving your point of view here .. makes this a very impactful image .. also like your editing with the added structure .. and how it looks on the kangaroos fur .. i am so close up that i feel like i could reach out and pat him ..
a good thing has come out of something rather unpleasant .. actually so far a few good things .. as in the photos you have shared in our side challenge .. :)

Oh my goodness. I love Kangaroos. I'm glad your husband was able to get your camera cleaned up.
