Powerboats 2.

By franken
Info as per my last upload. This is the last of the series as I don't wish to bore you all.

The chap is using a monopod in version 1 that's hidden by his leg.

The last one just about sums up the weather this summer!Sad

Think I would have taken my footwear off first. Another excellent set, Ken. Start with the humour, finish with a general view and some well captured action in between.

Legs planted apart, elbows braced, he'll be well placed to withstand the impact when the boats' wake hits him!

Another invigorating set, Ken.
My insurance covers my camera gear for photography near the water but not in the water Smile

Another great set Ken. It's much better photographing in water with foot gear on.

Must say Ken your camera handles noise very well for 800 ISO, another excellent set with V4 being my choice for the out of water capture, great excitement in every capture, one thing about your photography mate is never boring.

Great shot of a 'togger dedicated to his task Ken. !!! A fine series of shots with my favourite being the POV on V4.

I agree with Trev - your work is never boring Ken, in fact quite the reverse. Love these action shots. Those boats look so flimsy with those two thin hulls, although I imagine it's very exciting riding in them!

Been loving this series, Ken. If you have more, put 'em up! Never boring, your images.

Well done capturing that guy in V1 Grin

And I love how everything is so peaceful in the view in V7. The calm AFTER the storm Smile

Good set of action shots....V4 for me...that guy in V1...well think I would have been tempted with a longer lens...faster shutter...wider apeture....and kept my feet dry Smile or maybe some waders Smile
