Svolværs sjøløven - The sea lion of Svolvær. by 


Feeding time for the otters and seals and time for me to test, for the first real time, the “sports” function on my (then) new dSLR and my even newer telephoto lens.

Despite the camera turning out to be faulty from the start, causing some stress when I discovered that fact when miles over the Arctic Circle, this is one of the photographs that makes me feel quite proud and that reminds me that the (since replaced for a non-faulty twin) dSLR was in fact a wise investment.
