Heres my addition to the June Challenge. The subject is jet ski assisted tow out bodyboarding, location is Mandurah - Western Australia. Lighting conditions were over cast and dim, resulting in less than desired shutter speeds..
Reuben, for those that don't know, this Yank will explain...The Penalty Corner is where the Bad guys go (Green Jersey) so that the Good guys (Red Jersey) can wallop them. In this case the Red Team should have picked a better Walloper since the Bad guy is clearly out of his range. Hope this clears it up for the less enlightened among us. peace. stan
Here are a couple from the South Bay K9 trials last year. These are from the "Man Work" portion of the competition when the dogs go full out after trainers in padded gear. It's really amazing to watch the speed and power of police dogs in full sprint!
Well, after the somewhat tepid response to last month's contest it's good to see the entries flooding in this month. Lots of good ones so far. Keep them coming.
Yes Matt, I guess I was a bit remiss not providing an example or two, but I rather thought that perhaps everyone had had their fill of field hockey. But I'll submit these two. They're a couple of my youngest daughter's teammates.
The first one is a defender clearing the ball downfield to her offensive teammates. The second is a superb defender, trying to avoid being hit by the ball, which would automatically result in the referee turning posession over to the other team.
Rob's post reminded me of a kind of boat that does get airborne. The International Moth class has very few design limitations, so the boys in them are always experimenting. All the competitive ones now have hydrofoils (winged centreboards) which lift the boat fully out of the water in even fairly mild conditions. One of the main builders lives locally and is launching a new one in the next few weeks, so I'm keen to see what he's come up with now. Cheers Bruce
I usually don't like using the 80-400 for sports but the Dolphins only allow lenses less then 8 inches in if you're not media. The 80-400 is 7.6 inches nested so I was able to get it in. I would have loved to use my longer and faster lenses, but I wouldn't have been allowed.
