Catching Some Ray's

By Joeblowfromoz
Have been out of contact for a few days, and been caught up in some almost cyclonic weather - just been dreadful, but back in civilisation for a few days.

Continuing on from my last upload of the Pelicans, we had the best day out on a boat visiting a sea lion colony. What beautiful creatures they are and were in the water swimming with them and they were just a joy. Can't believe someone actually does this for a job.

Hope you enjoy this little fellow who was just worn out after playing with us in the water for over an hour and was seen just catching a few rays of sun, before going back out to play.

An excellent side portrait shot, beautifully lit to cast those whiskery shadows and captured in immaculate detail......they are so sleek and have such appealing faces. And I love all the colours and tones in the rippled waters around, golds through to blues.......lovely work, Jo.
(PS. Glad you survived the inclement weather.......seems to have been a feature world wide this year.....R)
