I love to watch the Harbor Seals along our Central Coast. It makes me smile to see them lift their heads and tails in an effort to stay dry as the tide rises. In the end the tide inevitability wins and they are forced off their sunny perch and into the water. I have always wanted to capture this behavior and I finally got the chance this July. I wish the light had been a bit more forgiving, but I am happy with the action of the water and the way the seals are posed. I hope this shot makes you smile too.
