Common seal pup in a sandstorm

 

Habitat Highly Commended, British Wildlife Photography Awards 2015


This image was taken along the Lincolnshire coast. Common seal pups are born during the summer months and by autumn they are on their own.  This is a critical time for them. The wind was strong on the day I took this image and I like how it was blowing the sand along the dunes. I think it created this wonderful sense of the harsh environment that this little fellow will have to survive in over its first winter.
