It's been a busy few weeks now term has started! I took this photo a little while ago during a brief break back to Wales. I'd never seen seals so close before! Ben Porter, another young wildlife photographer, showed me this spot on the Llyn Peninsula.
Directly below us in a small inlet, some mother seals were bobbing around in the shallows. There was a surprising amount of drama for such a small inlet: we witnessed fights, a seal pup nearly getting washed into the sea, and a mother seal haul herself across the rocks to reach her pup.
It was a crisp sunny day and the water was remarkably clear. I loved the abstract textures of the seals and surrounding rocks as they swam - almost like a watercolour painting. If you look carefully you can even spot rays of sunlight streaking through the water!
