Larry doesn't like getting wet, except to get clean, but he wandered out into the surf almost waist deep to get the bigger waves in the shot. It was worth it.

However did you think of such a clever title? *snicker*

Congrats on the HM and a well played season of TPL...

Yip... And a very risky shot if a sudden wave was to lift higher than expected. Nice effect and lovely finish.

Hah, hah. Love the title. The view's not shabby either. Nicely done. I predict a top ten finish.

The bubbling waves add a real sense of movement to an otherwise serene scene. Lovely picture.

This made me burst out laughing. Kudos. You get a 10 and a favorite from me because this is almost exactly how i pictured that part of the book so many years ago.
