I thought this was a fitting sunset to my wldlife shots from the Galapagos...
I know the shot isn't great - but I just like this guys character - I hope some of you enjoy the shot too!
This was one of the first areas we visited - it was a sealion bachelor colony, this is where the male sealions hang out if they are too young/old to go fight the others for the girls!
This chap seems to be staring into the distance thinking of times past maybe?

A dream...
what is she thinking...? ... we`ll never know.
what I know for sure is that this is the best way to live for her. Free, in peace.

I really like this picture... That`s why I`ve made this workshop version.

This picture looks like he was having a date with you and sitting there for you to come and sit next to him. I like how you can see his mouth.
Although there is some noise I still like it a lot.
