More Wake Wars

What a spectacle! Not only did the riders leave the water, they did acrobatics in mid air.
































It was hard work on such a hot day; not just for the wakeboard riders but me also. I spent quite some time out in the sun trying to get some good shots. This was a real challenge for me; still learning how to get the best out of my camera.

Sport photos can be tricky, but you seem to know what you are doing!

The heat was really unbearable. I burned--hat, sunscreen and all--in the short time we were out there! You really did get some great shots, well worth forking over the money to get in the fence.

Is he the Aussie Champ? Shooting such photos are hard, you dne a great job. I hope you had plenty of sunblock.

I am dark like a Maori, My bros tease that my husband won't like it and will veto any plans of traveling without him.

Gordon,

You make the shots look effortless.

The only negative comment I have is how the sun might have wrecked havoc on your skin.

Other than that, kudos to you.

This series is great.
