Blesséd be WENDY!

Good to see you made it to the skateboard ramp in time to catch this action.

Massive thanks for your very appreciative and encouraging feedback.

Afternoons are very good for skateboard or boadyboard action due to that wonderful light and I feel frozen action is the best way to display this sort of manoeuvre.

Nice capture, Dennis. Good job on the framing, and perfect timing. As usual, a very good conversion, as well.
