I Wanted To Capture The Might Of The Ocean Waves In Front Of This Galapagos Seal Lion As He Pondered Whether To Enter The Surf. The Low Angle, And The Movement Of The Water And The Seal's Head Add Impact. The Stones And His Fur Are Already Sarurated With Water Which Gives A Nice Effect In Black And White. The Galapagos Seal Lion Is Now Categorised In The 2008 IUCN Red List Of Threatened Species As Endangered.
EOS 1D MarkII; 70-200mm Lens; 1/100sec. At F32; ISO 400
