Isle of Bute
Landscape and Wildlife Photography
Scalpsie Bay on the west coast of the Isle of Bute was a treasure to visit. No sooner had we descended on to the beach from a precarious path down the flat shoreline, the seals were happy to come out and play. There were about half a dozen that came to pose for us and swim, blow raspberries and bask on the rocks. There are about 200 in the colony.
I must say I am not a wildlife photographer and I did struggle with the bright sunlight and the big telephoto lens, I had to play with the shadows etc to bring the detail out on the seals and do some major cropping to centralise them as the subject, they all looked a little lost at sea.
Thanks for calling in to my blog today 🙂
