If you go down to the beach today....

.... we certainly had a wonderful surprise.  During the week a friend told me about some seals on a beach that she had seen.  So this afternoon armed with camera, tripod and big lens Mick & I set off to see if we could see anything.  Here is a sample of what we found,

These were just two that were in the water, we spotted five in the water and nine lying on the beach.  Considering I was on the top of the cliff, the wind blowing a hooly and they were around 400-500ft away I am rather pleased with the images.  I have more of those on the beach but will upload those tomorrow.
I have to admit to knowing very little about seals - apart from them being very big when they pop up in the water beside you, not being the most confident of swimmers in the sea, it frightened the living daylights out of me when one did a few years back.  I think these are male though I am not really sure. Personally I love the colouring on the middle photo and can't wait to go back and get some more images and hopefully see this one out of the water.


  1. How fantastic Karen! and to get some brill photos even better. I love the second one too, possibly because she's (he) looking straight at you.....don't you just love your big lens!!

  2. Looks like it was a fine day.. grey but rough at Sennen today but good to get out! Hope you're keeping up with the scrapbook natterings..x
