Is he running from the wave or is that some species of killer South African seaweed chasing him Wink
Beautiful colours in the water and a very nicely captured shot Leon.

Superb candid shot, Leon. You are clearly a very quick-thinking guy to have captured such a moment.

Beautifully composed action shot with a great sense of urgency in the boy.
That stone was really used as a grave marker; there were some pretty morose people around in the 19th century Wink

I watched Jaws on Saturday evening, reminds me of this, I have seen it so many times and its rubbish but still scares me, great with the water droplets.

Super title to this shot. Think the child being framed running out of the picture and the wave filling the background adds impact to this shot. Gotta run....fast!!! - I should say so, puts the story across superbly.
