Getting in the Water


... might not be an easy task. Sometimes! :-)

Dramatic pictures!
Is that a spearfishing thing?

Stones are always extra beautiful in water.

Steffe said...

Cool.

San said...

Ha, this first pic is terrific. And the person stumbeling in the second pic could totally be me.
Interesting vantage point for both pictures.

This reminds me that I should put my Divers license back in use someday soon.

I love swimming...

Gine said...

Aie ... à regarder de loin ... Belles photos !

Fantastic perspective, JM.

Olivier said...

j'aime bien la perspective de la premiere photo

French frogmen doing a "secret" mission in Lisbon?

Sharon said...

These are such great shots!

cieldequimper said...

I wouldn't mind trying!

Woody said...

I'm not so sure I'd want to jump in that water with all those rocks around. Your shots are from an interesting perspective

Sylvia K said...

Terrific captures, JM! It does look tricky getting into the water! Love the detail, the white foam and wet rocks, the vivid blue and yellow of their suits and board! Marvelous composition! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!

I love the angle. At first I couldn't figure out what was happening. Nice colors, too.

VP said...

I like the composition and the colors of the first photo, but the reality of the second one is even better!

Jarart said...

Beautiful capture of a moment in time. I don't think I would want to go into that churning water.

Thank you for the translation for the word Sobe. I would not have known that.

Realmente as vezes deve ser difícil

Jacob said...

Looks very dangerous like it would be easy to slip and break a limb or two right about there...that doth appear to be a spear he's carrying...are these folks going fishing?

Might be easier to buy some halibut in the store? :-)

These are very dramatic photos - you were there at just the right time. Unless that's you with the spear and someone else took the photo?

Irina said...

Wonderful photos. First one with its cartoon-ish appearance, second one with its drama.

JM said...

@Jacob: No, it's not me, I just took the shots and they didn't even noticed me. Besides, I don't kill, I only shoot with a camera even underwater. :-)

Cildemer said...

Ai ai ai!
E então, acabou por espetar o amigo ou não?

Carolina Tavares said...

Suas fotos são incríveis. O colorido do azul com amarelo em contraste com as pedras da primeira foto... muito bom, sem falar que mergulhadores e mar são sempre uma temática que ganha atenção. Provavelmente eles farão pesca submarina, estão com arpão e tudo.

Jack said...

Your shots today are excellent. Very nicely composed, JM. This looks like hard work, if it work, or a difficult hobby, if it is recreation.

Bob Crowe said...

The angle is very cool. Is that a spear gun in the second picture. Looks like serious underwater fishing.

Babzy said...

A big bubbles bath ;)

Joan Elizabeth said...

I like the combination of child like colours and those lovely stones.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Colour, spear guns, much crashing of waves, these images have it all JM, fantastic!

Gunn said...

I like the way/where you have taken these interesting shots.

Ps. Tomorrow our two countries are playing football ....

Joanne said...

FANTASTICAS!!!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Great pictures -- I'm sure I'd have just given up and sat and admired the lovely little spot.

Randy said...

I love the rocks in the first shot!
