When there are waves the skimmers still need to feed. They time there skim go between the waves. This makes for tricky shooting as you want to be close to waters edge and low yet the waves keep coming in. I chose to shoot handheld on one knee and back off when I saw a wave coming which is only possible as I keep both eyes open.

Awesome set Morris, with this last shot being an absolute Killer, very well done.

You captured nice skimming actions, Morris - well done! What is that white "thing" in the foreground of the first image? The crest of a wave?

Thank you Anadya,
I'd never seen a young skimmer walk to skim, it's a great learning moment
