Focus on - July 2008 - Green Waters

Congratulations to Pedro Vieyra whose image of a sealion won this month's Focus on - Green Waters Member's competition. A total of 28 images were submitted.

Pedro's image was taken in the Sea of Cortez at the Southern end of the Baha Peninsula in late January which is the breeding season for this colony of  several hundred sealions. His  D200 with 10 to 17mm lens towards the 17 end, and a 'magic filter'  was on shutter priority at 1/160th  and continuous fire. This bull amused himself by charging at his dome port repeatedly, giving him a great chance for this type of shot.

The top six and how they scored:
