National Seal Santuary at Gweek

Well yesterday was taken up with surf photography and today a visit to the National Seal Sanctuary with Cornwall Wildlife Trust photographic group. Here they house rescued seals until they are fit enough to return to the wild.  Weather was abysmal right on cue at 10am it stared with bucket loads of rain. It was immediately obvious that images were going to be hard to come by and they were. Dark grey skies a lack of light and persistent rain made it all a little awkward, well near impossible. Lots of rejects today but here are some of the better efforts!!

Grey Seal

This one looked pleased to see me.

Then he realised I had no fish, just a wet camera!!

Haven't looked at mine yet but I expect there'll be a lot of ones that need deleting!
You did well considering the conditions

The second and third seal shots are great Bob.
Such big eyes.

Delightful images of those seals and I always wish the best of luck to them, for their lives are difficult.~
