I take it that you're the Patrick that I met down there on Saturday. Nice shots. I've been busy and haven't had time to do anything with my images except to get them off my cards onto my HDD. Didn't et to go out on Sunday to the finals. Looked like it was great on sunday from what I saw in the newspaper.

^^ Hi Ken...Yes, it was me that you met over the weekend. I just emailed a few candids snaps of you earlier. Yeah, Sunday's final event as expected is huge. I've been shooting the US OPEN for a few years now and only this year that I tried shooting at beach level close to the surfers to create a different perspective. All of these are not cropped simply because I'm just almost right there with them. That's how close I was to these fellas. I enjoyed it a lot even though I'm completely drenched. I decided not to bring the beastly 400 F2.8L MKII as it's so heavy to lug it around.
Shot with a 1DMKII + 300 F4L IS + 1.4xII...hope y'all enjoy!
