One of my boys here having a great time in the waves. I've said this before, but it always surprises me just how fast you need a shutter speed to be to capture decent action. I really enjoy taking pictures at the beach, but I am so paranoid about sand getting all over the camera and lenses. I have a separate "sand bag" that I carry my stuff in when I go to the beach and only the beach, but of course I forgot it on this trip. So I am forced to use my regular bag here. It is unbelievable how much sand gets everywhere even when you're careful!

Great shot Mike, reminds me of my son surfing in perranporth cornwall -I think you're brave to take the camera to the beach but it was deffinatly worth it! [excuse english -i'm english!]

I know, we live on a peninsula, and I always have sand in my van, even when I'm nowhere near the beaches!

Fantastic catch, love the frozen water splashes!

Yes, great water splashes! and wonderful expression of FUN. Would love to see this really close up with all that water dripping off of him.

Super shot. On the weekend I also went to a beach but that is no where as clean as this one.

Great action shot! The fast shutter speed has really made the splashes of water sharp and they frame your boys face nicely.
