All creatures love to stop and watch the sunset. 🌄✨

The big male Antarctic fur seals are just starting to arrive for the breeding season. They are not too pumped up on testosterone yet and are still fairly calm, spending their time posing rather than fighting. Soon the hormones will kick in and they’ll start trying to claim the best spots on the beach, sometimes killing each other for prime positions. The dense fur and thick layer of blubber on their chest will block a lot of the damage inflicted by their opponents... but those photos will come later on in the season!

As Paul Simon said 'his path was marked by the stars in the Southern Hemisphere and he walked the length of his days under African skies'. I definitely have had my path marked and unfortunately I won't be back for a few months which is especially frustrating under our British grey skies!
This was taken from the restaurant veranda of the  Olifants rest camp in the Kruger Park.

The American Bison is an incredible site at Yellowstone. Buffalo are herbivores and feed on about 60 pounds of plant material and grasses a day. For me, being in their presence offers a certain historical nostalgia. I feel as if I am transformed into a time where there were still frontiers to explore...

Photo #13 ~ American Pika ~

The American Pika is what scientists call an indicator species. Studying this mammal gives scientists a look into how climate change is affecting mountain life. For instance, the American Pika is used to cooler temperatures and because we are getting warmer summers and winters, they are having to go higher up the mountain or die due to temperature increases. Eventually, they will get pushed up the mountain so high that their food source will no longer be available or they will simply run out of mountain. I wanted to capture a photo like this because in my opinion it's kind of prophetic.

For editing, I made sure to lower the shadows a little bit for a more dramatic feel. I also rose the temperature (no pun intended) to give a warmer feel of the sun rays across the face. I increased the contrast to bring out the darkness of the rocks and then a touch of sharpening was added.
