Hallo Gerard
What a great scene. This must have been awesome to see it with your own eyes. The two sea lions in the water adds extra viewing pleasure and is an additional eye-catching bonus to this lovely image. I very much like the different layers in this image as well as the different colour tones ranging from gold to lovely shades of browns. Thanks for sharing a subject that we do not see often on the gallery. Best regards.

Bonjour Gérard,
Une jolie composition avec ces deux otaries en avant plan, mais heureusement tu n'as pas inclus l'odeur qui va avec !!!

Hi Gerard,

What a beautiful colony of fur seals you have captured. Seems they are all taking sun-bath before the harsh winter starts. Nice composition.

Thank you for sharing.
