This was at the end of a grand day on the boat with my kids and one of their friends (Hubby was off earning our fun-- I love him!). Our oldest was driving the boat up to the ramp for loading and I crouched low on the ramp (after he gentlemanly let me off at the dock with my camera) just barely in the water to get the shot while they were about 40' out.

My favorite part (besides the memory of a great day on the lake with my kids) is the reflections in the windows. Don'tchajustlove'em? :)

I had several other 'active' shots of "Boats" that I'd shot with plans of entering... and I treasure them... but thought you all would like this one best (as if anyone's actually reading this... *sigh*).

Thanks BUNCHES to my DPL team for helping me with the details. You ROCK!

Although, I love this heavily edited version best: [thumb]890708[/thumb]

This man was happily reading his book... just anchored there in his pontoon boat, "catching some rays". The wakeboarders and ski boats didn't even make him lift his eyes.

Life is good. Yeah. It is.

ETA: My score prediction? This one won't matter in the DPL playoffs 'cause my other entry is at 6.2xxx

Didn't I TELL YOU that Life is good?! *grin*
