Was away for a couple of days over the New Year. Took this shot in a place called Onrus Rivier were we spent a couple of days soaking up the sun and getting our feet wet. It is next to Hermanus that is famous for its whale watching. Would have liked more of the face in the shot.
Will catch up on all your shots in the next couple off days

Looks like a fun place to get away. Nice colors in the water.

Well done for trying an action shot Leon, I've never caught a good one yet especially in this category. Top marks for effort and rule of thirds.
Thanks for your kind remarks on my recent uploads, I can see you have been extremely busy since you got back. Look forward to your next upload.
Regards
Fran.

Bit of a shame about the face but doesn't really take anything away from the feel of the shot. It's a good action shot and gives a great sense of movement.

Whale festival is round about September / October month. Very special because the whales are less than 50 meters from shore and there is tons of them. I missed it last year but will be there this year
