Elephant Seal image published by National Geographic on their Daily Dozen

09 March 2016

I’m truly delighted to have had my shot Gulliver’s Travels selected by National Geographic editor Jeanne Modderman for their Daily Dozen (Mar 09, 2016).

Taken at St. Andrews Bay on my recent trip to South Georgia, the image shows an enormous Elephant seal lying sprawled out on the sand whilst surrounded by a colony of King penguins. It was my girlfriend Madeleine who thought of the title ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ which I feel depicts the scene perfectly – the giant elephant seal dwarfing the penguins and looking so content with life.

The picture also trended  #8 out of over 5 million images during 9th March on National Geographic and was favourited by editor Matt Adams.

You can see more of my photos from the Falklands Islands and South Georgia as well as my other published images on my National Geographic Your Shot page. My book from the expedition is also available to purchase and view on Blurb.
