It was flippin hot (40 + on most days) - so we spent most of the time in the pool.

Matthew started in trepidation

But one day he took of the lifejacket and just decided he could swim

(Thomas loved the UV suits as apparenty they made his neck tickle everytime he farted)

Eventually they got a rash from the UV suits and had to get shorts.

The focus on these was good - I tnk its the reduction in file size from the original and then the upload to the bucket - anyway ok for a general looksee ( see I was never this a nal about my pics in the past :lol: )

:lol: I think they're great!

I dont wanna go all, you know, camera nerd on you or anything :lol:, but what modes were you using? just that the focus is spot on and speed high enough to catch the water droplets perfectly

Thanks guys - :D - mostly the splashes were with the high speed 'sport' mode - but I spend most of the time with it set to manual now - love fiddling with the settings.

The original of Lisa being splashed is 1.2 m accross and looks fab in full resolution

As most of my 'clients' are 157 years old - the medicine associated with surfing surprisingly rarely rears its head

It's hanging with the surf dudes in Cornwall that teaches you these things. :D

Oh well then. Didn't realize you were a gerontologist. :sorry: (But even old folks need a t-shirt under their wetsuits). :yes: :lol:

Hey Chris, do you send your 157 y/o patients to therapy? Our doc's here do..that seems to be the age group I see most often any more..
Great photos BTW!!
