seals by Trueblood seals by Trueblood
Avila Beach pier, I keep hearing th barks, but can't figure out from where... I look down, and on the pier below me, about 8 feet from the water, there they are. While my friend sits on my legs, I hang over upside down swinging myself trying to get a decent angle. My head about to explode and my eyes watery/blurry, I click a few, not sure if I'm getting anything till I get pulled back up...

I do love the unusual angle that this was taken at. And there's such a huge value range present, among the seals, and the water reflections and also where it fades to black. I deffinetly think it was worth your while. I have a question: what position did you use to shoot this? how far were you from the railing? Because it looks like you got quite some distance.

I really like the feeling of utter lazyness I'm getting from the seals in this. Brilliant :)
