    Looks like someone remembered to carry the stepladder with the camera gear. Nice capture, Fernando.

    Re: What the ****?

    Does anyone have any insight as to what benefit climbing up on a ladder to shoot the sea would give?

    Very cool shot, Fernando.

    More separation between waves and horizon?

    (Imagine if Fernando had shot from (much) lower down)

    - and of course, we can't see what the shooter has in his foreground, but it may have wheels

    Well observed, as ever, Fernando well done

    Of course I do. It gives Fernando an opportunity to shoot an unusual (and comical) shot of a Nikon user on a step-ladder taking a shot of the sea, so he can post it on CiC in a thread called "What the ****". The only real question here is, what does **** mean?

    Life - it's so puzzling sometimes.

    Re: What the ****?

    Could he be standing on the ladder so when the tide comes in he can keep his feet dry?

    That's what I call a long exposure

    Just wait until he steps backward to pull in the entire scene.

    Of course, a real professional (like me) would use one of these... scaffold tower used to paint my house. But it also comes in handy at air-shows.

    No. I think it's too heavy for my wife to carry up there.

    Excuses, Sir! We know you have the muscles to carry her up there, while she holds the tripod.

    Don't say that. You will get the Australian and American ladies over-excited, and then I'll be clambering up and down all day, before I have a chance to change from the 500mm lens to the 1000mm (with camy cover, of course)

    Have we gone off-thread yet?

    Most probably. So, I should stop. Sahil did try to bring it back on track.
