Pop Up

When Steller Sea Lions come off their rocks to inspect us in our zodiac it’s almost like those pop-ups you get on the internet, only these are fun, and not at all annoying.  As you are clicking away at one, another one pops up on the other side of the zodiac.  To say that photographing Steller Sea Lions is a workout in photography might be a bit of an understatement.

 

I love the soft colors of this image which was created by the early morning fog that was slowly burning off, and of course, I love the natural curiosity of the Sea Lion.
