A2 - 594mm x 420mm - $395.00 - Edition Size 30
Taken from Moturoa Island at sun up on a beautifully clear May morning. Tikitiki (Ninepin) and the Mataka Penisular in the background.
The previous afternoon I’d gone ashore on the island in the foreground to take some shots. Pulling the dinghy up on the rocks I lifted my bag and tripod out and turned around, only to be confronted by a large grumpy male fur seal a couple of dinghy lengths away and advancing rapidly. A le-mans start saw me back in the dinghy and rowing away. He was a big bugger and in the goldy late afternoon light, beautifully camouflaged. Just didn’t see him until I’d completely invaded his privacy. He slipped back in the water and swam away. Sorry mate.
