p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Jökulsárlón Seals


A few shots of some harbour seals. Nothing special from a species perspective, but the location sure was. These seals are fattening up on fish in a glacial lagoon which connects to the Atlantic - Jökulsárlón in Iceland. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a week of "variable" weather as much as my time on that enticing island.

1. Foot Inspection - I couldn't tell if this was an extremely flexible individual or two side-by-side (leaning towards the latter).


2. Cruising By - This seal was cruising by, but still had a little look back for me. They can be inquisitive at times (but never so curious that I could use a shorter lens - 400 5.6).


3. What's That You Said - The same seal as above. He took a pause in his journey to have a quick look at me.


These images were taken with my 7D, 400 f5.6, handheld.

Cheers!

Ken

I've heard Iceland is a photographers dream location. Love the over the shoulder look back at you in the last shot. Great job on these Ken.

Great stuff Ken. Iceland is definitely high up on my bucket list. I think Edmonton has a direct flight now. Did you take advantage of that for your trip?

Thanks for taking a peek Mike. There is tons of potential there. The only limits are the photographer's skills. Hence my straight forward seal shots .

Many thanks Geoff. It wasn't on my bucket list really, but a deal came our way that was too good to pass up so we went (wife initiated actually). Yes, we took the direct flight - 6 hr flight and 6 hrs difference in time. It was a real treat to visit the island.

Thank you very much Birdies. I certainly took lots of pictures. But, with a keeper rate of 1:250, I'll soon run out of presentable items. A lot are attempts at landscapes, so you may need to visit other forums.

Must have been a blast to watch them.
Cool post, Ken. The fist is my favorite. Very nice depth and pose.

A species I never get to see being a desert dweller.
Thanks and well done.
