I agree! This is truly an awesome action shot!

Excellent work, Robert!

What focal length lens were you using?

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

Best Regards,
