Seal Colony at Kaikoura is a pretty neat place. You can walk and climb on the rocks (especially at low tide) and get as close to the fur seals as safety would allow. In places they were all over the place, and it was really pretty exciting being there. This shot would be a lot more colorful with some blue sky in the background, but no such luck this time - the skies were completely overcast for much of the day.
