2nd Place Cold Water

Celia Kujala

"Pup Playtime"



Celia Kujala won a YS-D3 Duo Underwater Strobe from Sea & Sea!


The Story: 


California sea lions are born in early summer in the Coronado Islands. Play is very important in their development. By late fall they have grown to be very confident in the water and can often be seen play fighting each other. I watched these two pups swirl around together and playfully bite each other. For now, it is all for fun as they learn skills that will help them later in life.
