Off the Pacific Coast Highway 1 just outside of San Simeon.
For extra reach, I used the Sony a6500 and the FE 70-300mm.
I spent a few very cold hours at the Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery in California and was amazed at the variety of activity I witnessed/captured from what at first seemed like an otherwise motionless beach of blobby bodies. This particular scene was an "intimate" shot of a male finally dominating this female. She cried out constantly, most likely irritated, but my heart literally hurt for her.
