    Just brilliant. Looking at this is the closest I will ever get to actually doing this…

  • Thank you…it does look like fun, but you’d have to be mighty strong to control one of these!

    Great shot,…I`ve watch them do that on some of the lakes here in Oklahoma,…They sure move accross the lake in a hurry,..

  • Thanks John! Sure does look like fun…I’d love to try it sometime, but doubt I would be strong enough!

    terrific capture Karen… were you on a boat?

  • Thanks Carol! I was just walking on the beach on a very windy day when I spotted what I thought were several little sailboats way out in the water and down the beach from me. I thought, "what idiots! they’re going to drown in this weather!’ So I hastily made my way down so I could capture deaths. There were no sailboats and no one died and I had a very pleasant hour of just shooting them…out of about 400 shots I got maybe 5 decent ones!

    A well timed action capture,Nice Karen,iv watched some of them doing the same thing last year Karen Wow did u have to wait long for that shot Karen..Nicely done and presented

  • Thank you! At first they were so far away I thought some idiots were sailing tiny boats. Then I saw what they were doing…what fun! When one shoots about 400 frames one should get a keeper or two! I always take way tooo many shots, but, I always end up only liking a few out of hundreds!

    I thought, “what idiots! they’re going to drown in this weather!’ So I hastily made my way down so I could capture deaths. Spoken like a true photographer. Love it :))

  • I’m terrible. One of those photographers who stand around while death, mayhem or riots are breaking out all over the place…..and shooting it.
