Much of the shooting this afternoon saw somewhat drab, cloudy conditions, but later on the sun came out, creating some beautiful sunset lighting. I took many shots of the sea lions glowing in this light, with the sun behind me, but decided to see what I could do from the opposite angle. This image is the result, and seems a fitting one to close this collection from our incredible trip to the Galapagos Islands.
