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.

Looks as though it could be JAWS at least..he looks really worried! Great shot.
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

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!!! - I should say so, puts the story across superbly.

Makes you wonder what he's running from,wave or something else ?
12 Feb 2008 5:53AM
This image makes me feel like a swim in that inviting blue water (after that wave has passed)...Great capture and beautifully timed, Leon.
