Abstract Seal. The day before my seal workshops began I headed down to the beach at dawn to work on my personal portfolio. Whilst I was photographing the colony in the sea, I turned and noticed this lone seal across a channel of water. The low winter sun glistened off the water beautifully causing the bokeh in the foreground but leaving the seal in shadow.
Abstract Seal – About Grey Seals
For much of the year grey seals are out at sea or hauled out on far away sandbanks. From October to December the seals come ashore to give birth to their pups on the sand dunes of Donna Nook. Donna Nook is home to one the largest and most accessible grey seal colonies in the UK. There are about 3,000 Grey Seals along the coastline, and 900+ pups are born each year. The area is actually owned by the MOD (Ministry of Defence) as a bombing range, but surprisingly the seals seem relatively undisturbed by the military activity and return here year after year.
