Up and over

The obligatory sealion jumping over the wall shot from Chester Zoo. To capture a shot like this you either have to be very lucky or shoot on machine gun mode at 5fps. I used a little bit of both. I watched the sealions swimming around, saw one darting for the wall and got ready and fired off shots in rapid succession. This was the best of my efforts. A tad on the dark side but all the same I like the captured motion.

Ususal PPing applied – didn’t do much with the contrast in this picture though because it only darkened it (obviously)
