Summer is Here Again

Most of the senior college students have left school for the long summer vacation and next week the junior classes finish.

No more school until February 2010.

Today I saw about 6 young folk jumping / diving off the wharf here at Murrays Bay on the North Shore of Auckland...

I have posted other photos of them over the last few years and I am always surprised that many people have commented on me not getting photos of them looking at me. 90% of them don't look at me - most of them look out where they are going and I just happen to be standing on the wharf with the sun behind me.

So - ENJOY and I do apologise that this guy's head is facing away from me...

I have added a WORKSHOP showing the kids on the wharf today

Hi Janice,
You make me jaleous, Murray Bay, Summer, Water and...Rangitoto! A fine summer impression, nicely sharp showing the cool blue water of the bay. Thanks for the memories.

I saw young guys jumping off the Orewa Bridge today, surely the water is too cold or am I getting old !!!

Nice action shot with Rangitoto in the background.

Hi Janice

Perfect freezing with such super fast shutter speed
nice clarity with so good background plus blue tone
If you cropped the wooden board, it will nicer compo happened in my opinion...Well done

TFS, Alireza

Hi, Janice,
this is SO cool. I am an absolute sucker for stop action shots and this is fabulous. Perfect timing, great color and clarity and he contrasts so wonderfully against the blue of the water and sky. The detail is amazing and I like the bit of dock to give an idea where he was coming from. I love it. Well done!! :)) Many thanks and warmest wishes,


One can notice that is the start of summer by the skin color of the guy jumping :)

I like the way you froze him in middle air.
Great shot.
