Jim and Dean waterski every day on the lake in Vermont where we stay in a family cabin every summer.

This year I finally asked to shoot them from the boat.

The light was spectacular because we ran north and south and the sun was setting. On alternate cuts they would be in front light, like my entry, or in back light, like this one:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/60862/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1031149.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/60862/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1031149.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I put this in my portfolio, where it got a few comments, then decided to edit it a bit and enter it in the Free Study. Glad I did!

Check out the other photos in the gallery . For example:
