[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken in an area between the city of Florence, Oregon and Haceta Head Lighthouse. This area is home of the Largest Sea Cave in the world known as "The Sea Lion Caves". I come to this area often just to watch the community of Sea Lions surfing the waves along with the Brown Pelicans that inhabit the area.

The photo was taken in January of this year and was one of the most beautiful and warm. The weather on the Oregon Coast is usually very windy and bitterly cold during this time of year. This was my lucky day!

I hope you enjoy and take care!

Hi Bettina
What a playground for a photograph.
A super zoom is in order to reach and get individual expression of the sea lions.
A general overview that makes me want more.
Slightly out of focus.
