Farne Seals

It was my pleasure to dive with seals in the Farne Islands in June this year, during a Bristol Underwater Photography group trip. Its quite an experience to enter the seals’ territory- I got the feeling that they were watching us, rather than the other way round. Certainly, any encounters were on their terms. Dog-like in their behaviour, these powerful predators displayed a very endearing gentleness, sensitivity and curiosity.

The video footage was shot using a go pro hero 2, which was mounted onto my stills camera. This go pro had no view screen, so my framing is a bit hit and miss. We were very much in the shallows, so the colour balance is a bit variable- some clips were shot with a colour filter and others not. See what you think…
