Group surfing lesson

Here is a surfing lesson in progress. You can see a row of beginning surfers all lined up catching the same wave, but none is yet standing up.

I took these photos with a little "point-and-shoot" waterproof camera, which explains the limitations in the quality of these surfing photos. The camera enables a vantage point that I could not get with a regular camera, as I could walk out in the middle of the surfers.

I have found that with a waterproof camera, it can be tricky to take photos that are in focus because it is hard to stay still when you are being pushed around by waves. The same problem happens underwater as well. It is hard to hold the camera steady if you are swimming trying to catch up with a fish to photograph.

Your vantage point is excellent though! Definitely worth the little jiggle.

Thanks so much for your concern for all of us. It's a terrible time in the Pacific region right now. I just pray that all the devastated countries have the strength and the resources to recover soon.

This is great. I highly recommend enlarging the image.

I like that you have taken this from the water. It gives a whole different perspective.
