Verbal Description: This color photograph centers two dark brown seals laying on a broken ice field, a dark blue sea barely visible between the cracks. The seals are positioned in a diagonal line, with their tails coming together at the middle of the ice piece they’re floating on. The seal on the left’s body opens towards the upper left corner, but they turn and face back, almost peering at the viewer. The seal on the right stares straight ahead, towards the bottom right corner.
