Not many surfers here, only windsurfers, and I like to take pictures of them.

It does look a bit chilly, but so beautiful! Gorgeous beach and terrific captures! Those surfers are braver than I am! Have a wonderful evening, JM!

I would think it is a little cold for surfing at this time of year in your area. They should come to Costa Rica.

That guy has got some pretty good equipment to get the job done.

Woody said...

He's pretty far away - a challenging shot for sure!

joo said...

I wish I could be there!

Lowell said...

A very beautiful scene. I hope the surfers are wearing wet suits!

And this guy must have a very steady hand and a very good lens to try to get these shots without a tripod.

A friend of yours?

I hope they got some good shots. Looks like it might be a bit cold for surfing though.

Lol, that could have been me a week ago. Except that it was so stormy I could hardly stabilise my point and shoot and that the photos came out in a blur it was so drearily grey! Nice one JM!

The beach just looks heavenly although I bet it's a bit cold. Lovely as always JM.

Randy said...

I love it! A jacket? Must have been a cold day.

It's so challenging photographing surfers hey JM, they move so quickly, one second there, then gone under the wave.

Francisca said...

My thoughts and questions are the same as Lowell's... :-)

@Lowell and Francisca:

All surfers are wearing rubber suits, the water is pretty cold! :-) As to the photographer (I have no idea who he is), he is actually using a tripod, but I managed not to capture it! :-)
