~ Afternoon Snooze ~

Couldn't resist uploading this seal photo to TL. It was one of many seals I saw on the rocky coast just north of Kaikoura, east coast of the New Zealand South Island. The air was bit smelly when I took this the photo, I guess the seals had belched their fishy meals into the sea breezes. I was pretty rich! :-)

PP details:
Crop and colourised the BG photo to create a cool sea blue tone. Then layered an enhanced coloured crop of same photo and added the soft borders. TFV.

Clear image.

Hello Martyn,

Great capture of this beautiful animal. I haven't seen the seals laying like this, snoozing on the rocks. Well, I have to come back some day and take picture like this one.
Nice colors and details.

Hi Martyn, that framing is different - I like what you did.
The seal stands/lies out well on the rocks - what a life!

Hi Martyn,
Hahaha I love this image. That lazy seal is very well captured! A fine view of nature, fine colours, contrast and brightness. Great posting!
