Post Surf's Up!

Some images from the surf school on the beach at Biarritz at the end of my Pyrenees trip. It was actually raining and overcast despite being August in the South of France Rolling Eyes

K3 and Da*300.

Some great shots there. Reminds me of an Aussie K10D user from Perth a few years back who'd take his camera into the surf for his shots - camera was OK after a rinse of with tap water before final wipe down Smile . Not the sort of test I want to emulate - content with Vienna rain and sustained Chinese deluges as my field test of the efficacy of Pentax's WR systems.

Thanks Steve. It was mostly the rain rather than see water that camera had to endure here too. I was using the 300 from the shoreline, so it was just my toes in the sea. I did consider venturing in for some shots, but the waves that day knocked you off you feet, so though better of it Very Happy It really is great to have gear where you don't have to worry (too much) about the weather conditions.

Post Re: Surf's Up!

Thanks Steve. To be honest that was a shot that really annoyed me - I loved the action of the surfer diving but I found the beach encroaching into the frame annoying. I tried rotating and cropping to exclude it but wan't really happy, so left it as it was.

It doesn't detract and puts the whole image into context.
