Poser

One day while wandering the coast between Brora and Golspie, must have been somewhere around the Coves I guess, came across this pup sunning herself of a rock. Spent a good half an hour with her, and she was a right poser, loved having her photos taken. I must have about a dozen keepers from this shoot.

Fast asleep

Here’s my favourite from yesterday’s work. This wee fella was fast asleep on the beach. As I approached, all the other seals trundled off into the sea with a huge splash. This fella was so sound asleep, he didn’t hear them. I sat down beside him on the sand and it was about 5 minutes or so before he woke up. He looked at me with huge wide eyes, then looked at the sea, then looked at me again. We had a good old chat for a few minutes before he headed down the beach to the water. I got some cracking photos.

Here’s a 2 or 3 weeks old grey seal pup who was just learning to swim for the first time. I was there when the pup first went into the sea, and an hour or so later it swam up to me and posed for a few photos.

Here’s my favourite photo from today’s work, just finished a minute ago. Love this work. You can really feel how at home this seal is in the ocean from this image. Our coasts must be one of the most hostile and dangerous environments on earth, and yet it’s where they call home.

Been working on this one all evening. Kinda happy with it now. Love this work. I’ll wait until I have another 3 or 4 ready before uploading it, as I need to order test prints for every image, make sure they’re the best.

Seals

Here is a selection from today’s uploads. I’m chucking a lot of my old photos away because they just don’t do it for me any longer. I’m only keeping the ones I’m really happy with, and some of these have required a fair bit of work to bring them up to speed. Love spending time with seals.
