    Well, we must adapt to whatever view we are given and you took advantage!!! LOL. This would have been a fabulous visual for my grandson’s diving team instructor when he was emphasizing some of the kids to use your toes! Wonderful capture Dorothy. Sandy

  • Many thanks. I was actually set up for one jumping OUT of the water lol
