Not sure if this counts. It was taken on my old Kodak DC3400 at Mandurah in Western Australia.

Nice shots Dave, pity you couldn't get down behind the swimmer on the first shot. :-)

The first shot is wonderful. Prefer it to the second. Always love when something other than the sunset is in the picture it gives it an additional dimension.

Vito,

The water was hitting a rock shelf that was just above the water's surface. It was channelled into a sort of a V shape, and first blasted out a thin stream of spray liek a blowhole, then the pictured surge/splash of water.

I have a couple of the initial spray if anyone is interested.



P.S. Locals told me that the shelf is normally covered by sand, and only looks like this once every few years, I was only there for a week so I was lucky.

Beautiful photos Dave, love the fact that the swimmer is not 'obvious' at first in the picture.
