Finalist Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Sean Scott Cape Arid National Park, Western Australia
Southern right whales off a beach in Western Australia. "This is a drone image taken in Cape Pasley in Western Australia," says photographer Sean Scott. "This is a remote part of the incredible Western Australia coastline. The beauty and ruggedness of the Cape Arid National park is second to none and is one of my favourite places in the world to explore. With my outback photography 4WD I camped out down here for more than a week to photograph and watch the beautiful southern right whales as the families socialised in some of the clearest water in the world. They travel up from Antarctica and hit the coast here before heading back."
