[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A few weeks ago we spent the day at the river fishing and swimming. I blended to action photos of the "Foofy Slide". Jesse, fearless as always, is riding on the Spiros' back.

just cropped the photos.

For all those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, this is what we are up to this time of the year. Happy new year and enjoy the snow.

Hi Jaco,
This is one nice action shot with living colors and cool frame :)TFS
CT

Hmmmmm, seems like SA and NZ are having the sun and Tasmania is missing out, just as well the mainland is sweltering and experiencing bushfires in most states.
Wonderful shot Jaco, the blurring, the splashes all make for a good action shot. Brings back memories for me of a certain spot on the river in my home town in Western Australia. TFS

Rob
