If I ever get above myself and think I’m beginning to get somewhere photographically it doesn’t take long for me to realise how wrong I am. Mrs. Ha and I were going through a slide show of her Antarctica photos tonight. She only shot in jpeg mode. This meant that she (or rather I) could download the lot on to an iPad when we returned and see a slideshow within an hour. I on the other hand am still ‘sorting’ 2 weeks after our return. She has also nipped over to FotoMax and printed a load off the flash card whilst I haven’t even thought about printing yet. And here’s the real rub. Looking at the slide show (again) I realised that her Superzoom has produced shots I can only envy. My limited repertoire of lenses and heavy DSLR bodies meant I missed shots Mrs. Ha could nail in a trice with her camera. And the quality is pretty darned good too.
That led me to look again in desperation at my files to see what I hadn’t touched yet. There must be something ok in there somewhere. Aha! I don’t think I have put up any seal shots yet. So here then is a small selection of shots to make you go “aaaahhhhh!” – I hope.
These white seals are, if I recall correctly, called blondes or leucistic. They are not albino as they don’t have pink eyes.
I dread to think what the gunge is……….
I only have eyes for you-ooo
Haven’t you seen a seal having a bad hair day before?
This selection was from just one beach so I’m afraid there may be more to come. And then of course I shall have to start on Mrs. Ha’s images. You have been warned.
