AntZ, LeAngel and Myself cruised down to the seaside this arvo to shoot some Kite Surfers at play ... plenty of action for us to enjoy.

Here's a couple of shots I got (I'll add more later) and I suspect AntZ and LeAngel to add some as well.

Hmmm what were they thinking???

I wonder how deep this is? What is down there? Maybe we shouldn't have stayed out here so long? :D

You were right with guess 3.

Still going through my shots. So far I am somewhat disappointed.

That is wonderful how you all go out shooting like that and then we get to see the shots afterwards! Neat to see what each of you get.

It can be very interesting indeed sometimes because we often take very different photos.

Not so much with something like this though. That 3rd shot of AntZ' is almost identical to one I took (see first post). Nice shot AntZ ... very crisp!

Love the multi-kite shot too!

Freezing! It was 28 degrees C in the air and about 26 c degrees C in the water ;)

From memory I think the water only gets to about 10 degrees C around at the coldness in the sea during winter and probably closer to 2 - 4 degrees C in some streams that see little sun.

Right now it's still pretty warm by day ... official temps are around the 28 C but it's mostly around 30 - 32 in the suburbs where there's cement and buildings.

Soon it will be very nice and comfy at around 22 - 26 C by day ... but it won't last long enough. I'd like to move to Tasmania where it's cooler most of the year round :rolleyes:

Nothing wrong with those shots. My shots were mostly landscapes as I only had the 28 -135 lens.

Yes, Thanks everyone.

I just remembered another pic which is not a photographically spectacular, but is interesting none the less.
