UPY British Waters Wide Angle - Third
'Grey seal gully'
Grey seals are wonderful to photograph but I particularly like this shot because of the background. My buddy showed me this pretty gully full of dead man's fingers and light coming down through kelp. I waited there for a little while, hoping a seal would turn up. In the end I only had one quick pass from one shy seal, but I was able to take this pleasing portrait.
Judge's comment: Seals are one of the UK’s most charismatic marine species and I love seeing this individual immersed in its habitat in the colourful underwater world of British Seas. It is a fresh take on a subject usually photographed near the surface or amongst sea weeds.
