La Jolla Cove Sea Lions


Dick Greenberg has inspired us to share our best photos for his November 2016 Photography Contest.


This is my entry for the Real Life category in the animals subcategory.


Sea Lions at La Jolla Cove


World famous La Jolla Cove in La Jolla, CA, just north of San Diego, is known for a wide range of wild life  - seals, sea lions, pelicans, and cormorants, to name a few. It's a beautiful area and well worth a visit - enjoy a walk along the bluff or take out a kayak for a whole different perspective!


I caught these guys taking a nice nap in the sun on the rocks by the Cove during a visit a couple of years ago.

Jeff, sea lions are wonderful animals!  I got up close to them a couple of times off Cape Cod.

Such cool photos!  Sea Lions really know how to relax, haha.  They don't seem worried at all about what people think!  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friend!

Jeff,  I love the ocean and nature. I could easily sit for hour and just watch. The sound of barking seals brings a smile to face.

Jeff loved the picture of the Sea Lions, Diane and I could watch them for hours, listening to them talking and  how the Alpha ones fight over the positions... Endre
