Here are a few more photos from Sable. I am still working my way through them all.
Male grey seals fighting at the surf
Male grey seals fight to establish access to females. Often these fights end as soon as one gets their camera out, but this one happened to start as I sat on the beach with my camera out. The goal of these fights or wrestles, is to bite your opponents hind flippers. These flippers are very important since they provide the seal with propulsion for catching their prey. Once the opponent bites down on the hind flippers, the game is over.
Old East Light at sunset
This is the remains of the old East Lighthouse at sunset. I caught the start of the sunset on south beach and was quite disappointed with it. However, when I got back to the cabin, the sunset had turned quite spectacular but I had nothing to focus on. So I dashed over to the old East Lighthouse to catch the last few minutes. This scene lasted for a matter of minutes. Sunsets require patience.
Erosion of the Big Flat Dune
A couple of years ago, this dune was huge. It was a landmark that we used to navigate with. It had been there at least since 1997 when I first visited the island. One winter, in a matter of months, it was reduced to this sorry sight. I drove past this dune on many occasions but the weather, light and so on was never quite right. On this day it was.
More images will come soon...
