A seal snoozing on oil pipe
This image shows seals sleeping upon an oil pipe that connects to a greater oil rig in the Pacific Ocean. I noticed many animals that call this area home, but also saw numerous floating oil cans and other pollution. I wanted to show the innocent nature of these seals and how they have taken to using these rigs as harbors to rest at in the ocean.
