Seal Snooze

Seal Snooze

One of my highlights to Queenstown in New Zealand recently was the short trip I made to Milford Sound, and the subsequent cruise in the fjord that had been carved out by the glaciers of times gone by. The highlight of that trip, was seeing, up really close (as in reach out and touch), a number of seals basking on a rock, aptly named “seal rock”. Here’s one of the cuter specimens.

Crop, Sharpen, Levels/Curves, Vignette (some pre-processing in Lightroom RAW).
