*LOL* Thanks Denny! I actually didn't get wet, but had to take the camera in for a censor cleaning due to the amount of sand flying. *S*

"Better Photo Basics", page 31. This wonderful picture is featured in Jim's discussion on using the Sports Mode to shoot action. He identified this as an Ocean tide scene - it looked too familiar not to check it out (rightly so.) Michigan has more photographable Light Houses than any other State. This is just one of them. Gotta get that man over here for a 'coastline' trip, eh?
