Sealed with a kiss

Inspired by http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...ghlight=horsey , I visited Horsey Gap beach, Norfolk yesterday to see the Grey Seals (plus I've never been to Norfolk before and wanted to check it out for a future trip at a more pleasant time of year.

A stiff breeze (blurring seal pup fur), low winter sun shadows, and shooting from the top of the dunes presented some challenges. My best images were of the adults (in my opinion the pups were cute, but rather expressionless).

That provided a more interesting subject matter and I went for close ups using OMD EM1 Mk2, 300mm f4 + 1.4 TC (hand held):
