#182 Sad Little Monkey

Sometimes life seems all too difficult. I’m not sure what was depressing this little monkey more, a life behind bars or the climate of a Houston summer. I’ve pretty much looked like this everyday for the last three months – 36oC today and our air conditioning broke. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 200 mm |…

#181 Californian Sunset

Once the elephant seals have finished head-butting and biting each other, and the day draws to a close, there’s little else to do apart from lie back and watch the sun slowly set across the Pacific Ocean. And what better way to celebrate such a stunning moment than with a bottle of wine and a…

#180 Caught in the Act

Here she is again, about to take a cheeky bite out of someone’s behind. I love this split second before clamp-down; the focus; the zeal. Next time you see someone about to take a massive bite out of a piece of cake or a burger, look for this moment – it’s glorious!     Camera…

#179 Elephant Seal 3

I completely agree, you can never have too many photos of grumpy elephant seals. So let’s get factual. The seals seen here, at Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery, are northern elephant seals, or Mirounga angustirostris if you want to sound posh. Apparently they can hold their breath for up to 2 hours, during which time…

#178 Elephant Seal 2

This one was a real trouble maker; constantly looking for someone to bite, or shove out of the way. Maybe she was hungry. I get quite grumpy when I’m hungry; I try not to bite people though. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 200 mm | f/2.8 | 1/2000 secs | ISO 200

#177 Elephant Seal 1

After a bit of a hiatus, what better way to get back into the swing of things than with some awesome photos of elephant seals. These rather unique looking creatures can be found at the Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery, located along California Highway 1, equidistant between San Francisco and Los Angeles. This first picture…

#176 Vodka

Time for a bit of product photography. And where better to start than a classic bottle of vodka. I’d like to say I’m really professional and don’t eat or drink the props – but that wouldn’t be entirely truthful. Maybe I’ll take a picture of some red wine next. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 100…

#175 Sunny Zion

When Zion wasn’t being grey and wet, it was being sunny and awesome. After walking for an hour in very heavy rain we were rewarded with this amazing view, looking south from the entrance to Zion Canyon. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 24 mm | f/8.0 | 1/400 secs | ISO 200

#174 Zion Canyon

Once my wife’s hair had calmed down and I could fit her safely back in the car, we hit the road and made the 220 mile trip northwest to Zion National Park. The canyon at the heart of the national park is spectacular, even when it’s grey and wet. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 80…

#173 Horseshoe Bend

I’d like to say my wife wears her hair like this all the time, but unfortunately she doesn’t. Once you’re done admiring the hair, please glance on through to the background, where you’ll see the stunning canyon of Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon National Park. Camera stats: Canon 6D | 16 mm | f/8.0 | 1/800…
