Water Sport Sunday

On Sunday afternoon we took a drive down to one of my favourite sunset spots - Wellington Point. It's a popular day trip destination all year round but Summer brings out all the extreme water sport fanatics and makes for even more interesting photography.



The kitesurfers are rather amazing to watch... now that's some real "air" he's getting.

Coming in to land...

Touchdown!

And a sharp turn creates some impressive spray...


The sunset was impressive too.



I hope you had a lovely weekend.

All clever water sports shot - your touchdown capture is really impressive. The shot following that photo would be me - except that's the scene you'd be taking the entire time! I spent a long time looking at your first sunset shot - in my opinion you've composed it with the perfect amount of water, love the strip of golden on it from the sun.
