This was shot from a bridge 150 feet above the water with a 200mm zoom lens at 1/500th of a second in shutter priority. I would have loved to get that helicopter ride though the photo would probably have to be shot faster to compensate for the vibration.

Fantastic shot!!! Wonderful how you caught it!

Impressive shot. You do know how to capture these moments.

Man, those guys are nuts! The rip tide through that channel is deadly!!! Only higher powered boat engines can make it through during the strongest part of the tide! Swimming is not allowed on that side of the park for obvious reasons. Still, it probably rates like rapids on a river.

City Girl said...

Holy crap! Were you on a bridge and just happened to look down and there was the shot?!

Nice timing!

Do you purposely pair your photos or do similarities pop out due to proximity? The 2 kayakers look like the flip image of the butterfly wings below. The train car with its verticals paired with the fence posts. Then 2 cloud capped mountains. Different in feel but similar elements. Gives the images a real boost. Well done.

to me it's all random but maybe i get in a mode that i am unaware of in my selection. it's not intentional ... but the mind can do whacky wierd stuff.
