About the Image(s)

Leopard Seal was created back in January 2013 when we were on an Antarctica Cruise. We were close to the Antarctica Peninsula on a beautiful day, not windy and reasonable temperature (about 28-34 F). My wife and I were walking on the deck and passed near this beautiful piece of ice, with an incidental passenger, a Leopard Seal. The only camera I had on hand was my wife’s point and shoot Canon G9 with a zoom lens 7.4 “ 44.4 mm and @ 44 mm. I took a few images. The cropped image was taken with these settings: ISO 80, f/6.3 and 1/1250 sec. The image was cropped, and adjusted for white balance and added some clarity, and light to the face of the seal, since it is side lighted. The ice is of an impressive size and structure. I added a second image (original) so you get the whole idea of location, and the total size of the iceberg.
