It's beautiful, no doubt -- as your photo clearly shows. But I'll be happy to sit on that beach or stand on the pier and watch the youngsters have a go at the surfing thing!

Thanks again to each of you.

Linda~ this was captured at the Oceanside Pier, California. I met this surfer as he was exiting the water. He was nice enough to stop so that I could take his portrait. I gave Jim my website address. He later contacted me to ask about this image. Thanks to him, I entered it in the contest.

I appreciate all of your congratulatory wishes!!!

Sincerely,

Donna

Belated congrats Donna I missed this one somehow. Great composition and light. Beautiful sunset the surfer completes the image, very well done! As far as surfing at sunset not a good idea unless you don't mind becoming dinner for a shark! They are very hungry at dusk its the beginning of their feeding time.
