p.1 #1 · Galapagos- #9 Sea lions


1. Pinnacle Rock- the most identifiable bit of geography in the Galapagos Islands. Strange fracturing, tilting and/or erosion that caused its odd angle.
2. Brown pelicans waiting for a handout from our cook. Because we ate fresh-caught fish three times a day, there were always fish parts being thrown into the water. Local pelicans knew that.
3 & 4. Smaller versions of the California sea lion, these cute young'uns played and waited until their mothers returned from fishing.

I really like the look of the pelican shot. Has a nice mood to it with the blue overtone. The sea lions were some of the funnest animals to just sit and watch.

Thanks, Arbi.
I don't know why, but the combination of sunlight, clear and shallow water and sandy bottom gave the image this color; it was a straight Kodachrome shot, with basic scanning and PP.

Thanks Conrad, Chris and Ken.
We found small colonies of sea lions on several of the beaches where we pulled ashore. They were always fun to watch- especially the youngsters. Regarding the last shot- there were other sea lions on the beach, but I moved to a place where I could shoot wide and NOT include them- thereby indicating the feeling of abandonment probably felt by the lone baby. And that's what it is for them every time mamma goes fishing. If she were killed by sharks or orcas, none of the other moms would nurse the pup, and it would starve.

Those pellies look like that are at a night club with that lighting. Another interesting set Charlie.

The first is my pick Charlie. I know it's hard to tell, but the white balance might be a tad off in the peli shot... ~ Ron

Thanks Ken, Tim, Ant, Dorian, Morris and Ron.
Well, Ron- SOMETHING'S off , but since I shot these with Kodachrome film and don't even know what "white balance" means, perhaps you could explain it better .

Just pulling your leg Charlie. I know these were slide. I've not scanned slides, so I don't think I can help. But "white balance" means that anything white in the shot should be, well, white.
You can easily adjust the WB if you shoot RAW ~ Ron
