Near Arapaleeswaran temple there is a river and some people taking bath ... the are spending so much time there... (some of these friends behaved like seals... i remebered `animal planet' then...)
(Kollimala is beautiful green mountain near Namakal town of Tamil Nadu.
It has a historical importance. Before AD500 there was a kingdom and famous kings of ancient tamil history `Kari' and `Ori' had ruled there.
This hill is not suitable for tea. But it is a very good agricultural land. There are lots very beautiful locations but not much tourists visited here. We have to drive 70 hairpins to reach the top.
There is very beautiful water fall at the top near `Arapaleeswaran' Temple. But approach to the waterfall is horrible. We have to climb down 700 big steps.)

Actually I think that the 700 big steps, must be a very enthusiastic and exciting climbing. I love hikings, so...
I love your title and the seals metafora and agree with Aleks - this should be in the humorous category. The lighting is marvellous as well as the motion of the water. The composition of those guys are very well suceeded. The atmosphere is great! Congratulations!
Have a nice day,

A nice picture of the "seals" enjoying the water around them. I can hear their noise. :) Very funny shot, you should put it in the "humorous" category.

This is great too - I like the action in this shot - so much power in the water with the 3 seals having fun :O)
700 big steps.............is nothing :)

Pramod, cette photo est très agréable à voir c'est un moment de détente au milieu de la rivière et les personnages forment une pyramide inversée les corps sont très bien rendus on dirait des statues figées dans le mouvement. Il y a certainement un autre personnage dont on ne voit qu'un bras.
Belle réalisation !

A perfect nature shot. Those guys skin are so oily, water are just gliding over them, I love it.

Nicely composed, interesting colour tones! I like the angle of lighting here as it adds a lot to your capture... Great muted colours and very clear good details, well done!

Fantastic picture and really funny title. These men really looks like seals, but who not like to be like a seal in the water. A wonderful compostion with the men, the rocks and the rapids. I love it.

Good and interesting scene. Perhaps a little dark, but the composition works very well.
