Seals at Red Rocks

A two-hour walk this morning along Wellington's wintry south coast west of Owhiro Bay to the seal colony at Red Rocks, where plenty of furry inhabitants are resting on the shore. One seal was idling very close to the main carpark and gate, presumably having been separated from the remainder of its pod. Note that I have a long lens on my camera, so I don't need to approach the seals too closely to get these shots.
