seals - and take one home
These images of grey seals have been collected
over many years while spending weeks with them along remote coasts in the Highlands.
They can be yours to enjoy as well, and they make excellent gifts
at any time of year for anyone of any age. Personally I prefer metal prints as they are laser
etched onto glossy aluminium, the
colours have a depth you can feel, the prints are resilient, the colours
never fade and they look as vibrant on your wall as they do here
on the webpage.

This was a special moment, something I will always cherish. The
newborn pup had been sleeping and just woke up. I was the first
human being he had ever seen and you can see it in his eyes. I
call it First Contact.
This grey seal pup had shed most of her white baby fur, and here
she is blowing bubbles in the ocean just before taking the plunge
for her first swim in the sea.
This grey seal pup came along the shore with a curious wonder in
his eyes to spend some time with me. We made good friends, and I
often wonder where he is now.
Whenever this pup felt threatened when his mom was away at sea
hunting fish, he would come over beside me and we would chat
for ages. There is no fear in his eyes, only peace.
What beautiful and majestic creatures grey seals are. Our coasts
are the most dangerous and intimidating environments on earth, and
yet it is where they call home.
What wonderful fur coats these seal pups have to keep them warm
even in winter snow. This adventurous pup had just come ashore
after exploring a small rock pool and was still wet.
It was a bit of a cold day with a nasty gale howling in off the
ocean, and Snowy here was sheltering behind a rock. She was nice
and cosy, and you can see she is losing her white baby fur.
newborn had such adorable puppy eyes.
