I agree! This is truly an awesome action shot!

Excellent work, Robert!

What focal length lens were you using?

Cheers,
Glenn

Thank you both for your nice comments. This picture was made with a Canon EOS D30 camera and a Sigma 50-500 tele lens at 500mm, mounted on a tripod. Shot from shore at a distance of about 100yds or so. If you'd like to see more of my "action" pics, please visit http://www.bgcp.com.

Best Regards,

Bob, this is a truly fantastic image - the composition, lighting, ...well everything, is absolutely spot on - very well done, if I may say so! Thanks Mark.
