All entries are in and the judges are now deliberating on who should be Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The winners will be announced next month at the Natural History Museum in London.
One of the entries was submitted by Tom Steele, 18 years old, who took a photo of a sea lion doing a backstroke. â€œI picked a moving animal to give a creative edge. The sea lion emerged swimming on its back. It looks as if its mouth is open, but that’s an illusion,â€ Tom said.
For a while there, I thought Edvard Munch lent a creative touch to the photograph.
