This is a fine action capture Louisa! I am sure I would have loved this sport if it had been around when I was a boy!
Happy New Year! I hope 2012 will be kind to you! #1433703

Louisa, this is a fantastic action shot, so sharp and you've caught him so well. The waves in the foreground really add to this image, with them rolling in and splashing like that. #9897748
