By a Whisker !

By chase
Taken at a recent trip to Donna Nook with a bucket full of great friends.
This is my third visit to this location & I was determined to get down to the water's edge this time,come H*ll or high water.....I made it but the return journey was a race against the incoming tide Wink......I didn't know you could wade through water as fast as that Maddie !! Wink

Got down & rather sandy for this baby.

F7.1 manual mode
1/100th sec on the floor !
ISO 400...light was rather iffy Wink
F/L 240mm
Pattern metering

Sorry I haven't been around of late,I have had serious problems with my somewhat aging computer.......all fixed now I hope !

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas & a Happy & Prosperous New Year. to get the Turkey now Wink
Janet xx

A wonderful wildlife image, what a lovely pose

Janet, the angle is just right to present the baby seal at its best - the sand contamination was well worth it (at least from where I sit!)

Have a wonderful Christmas, thanks for your support!
