Elephant seal at dusk

I decided to post the last shots I took on our trip to Ano Nuevo State Reserve first, so here's a few frames from after the sun had set below the heavy clouds. This male elephant seal was quite large, although probably not as big as any of the dominant males we saw in the main part of the wildlife area. But from his extensive chest shield, you can see that this guy has been in his fair share of fights.
