O.K. my "Breaking News" photo was a big success. Problem is how do you follow that up?................... You go look for it's big brother. You get wet. You take bigger risks. You see what I'm talking about? I got up on a cold (50 something degrees which in Miami is cold) and windy Sunday morning and went out in that South Beach surf with my baby and got busy just for you guys. Hope you enjoy these NC POV's (Nut Case POV's).............. and keep the donations coming (Joe's Camera repair loves me).

Well, you cetainly topped the last shot. Love this one too, bigger curl and lots of that awesome Turquoise color.
How wet did your camera get this time???
Do you have one of those camera raincoats or waterproof bodies?? Might be a good investment. #5619884

This is a beautiful POV Michael....I just love the detail and color. You did a nice job with the composition as well! #5620422

OK, I've decided to vote for number one in the series of Turqouise Thunder. They are all very good, but this has the best composition, even if number two came very close, with all the details in the water. Amazing pattern! I think the composition works perfect in that one, too, with the pattern in the bottom part. #5622169
