Photo of Seals on the Sand

On a recent morning I dropped by the pelican bluff and found it pretty crowded so instead I shot harbor seals just around the bend. It was a fine morning and I had the beach to myself at the Children’s Pool. Here are a few portraits of the harbor seals (Phoca vitulina richardsi) on the sand.
