I must know - were you lying down when you took this and where is this beach full of shells? I have never ever been on a beach so filled with shells! I hope you had sandals on. This is quite a photo, Nuskyn! Where were/are you????
Hmm it is indeed pretty close to my home city, maybe I should go there too! I only go to the Hoek van Holland beach and dunes to run from time to time... and the Wadden sea islands with my family once a year
He was resting on a remote sandbank, only accessible during very low tide, with almost no people around (use flickr map for exact location).
At first we thought that he was sick or old, but a few seconds after the picture it crawled to the water and was gone..
We've seen 4 different seal's that day, but this was the first (and maybe the last) time that close.. a very special moment.
