    Walking on Water

    Walking on Water

    She was trying to cross the entrance to a tidal creek before the next wave came in. But she didn't see a channel: 3 more steps and she was up to her waist in it. Unfortunately, I missed that...

    Walking on Water

    This one was beyond the reach of my lens, so this is about 50% crop and then some sharpening etc.

    Hopefully the reason you missed it is because you were helping her out of the drink? Nice images, were you standing on the beach or the pier for the surfing shot? That's as far as I'll go for the board action.

    No, John, I she didn't need rescuing - she was out of it almost as quick as she went in. I missed the shot because the camera was busy writing to the card.

    The surfer: I was on the beach.

    Those are nice action shots. The title fits the first perfectly. Well, maybe she's running on water....

    I'm a bit cofused. Where is the fin and dark shape in the wave? The way we here it over hear there is a GWS in every wave. Or at least behind every surfer

    Title definately fits the first shot. I imagine the look on her face was priceless when she hit the deep water. Been there, done that. It is shocking

    Terri and Dan, thanks for viewing. I think I should have focused on the young woman's feet; but this was happening behind me.

    It's funny that you mention sharks, Dan. Yesterday a local pool was closed because there was a shark in it.

    You have to be quick if you want to see this, the local paper's links tend to decay pretty quickly

    So basically, not only are they in every wave, but you've even got them in your swimming pools? Oh lovely. No need to pack the swim suit for our trip.

    Lost many a shot because of slow card speed and a few with a slow auto focus.
