  3. Clearly an athletic family! The spray behind the skiers makes for an ideal composition.

    Beautiful ladies.....and images!
     
  5. Great photo's. I couild never get up on a ski.
     
  6. How about two skis?
     
  7. I'm a dedicated landlubber. Great duo, great shots!
     
  8. It has been a very long time since I waterskied, but I found, oddly enough, that it seemed easier to slalom (one ski) than to ski with two skis.....just easier to control the direction and what I was doing, no worries about one ski banging up against the other.......

    Both of them, wife and daughter, look like they’re really enjoying themselves! It takes quite a bit of muscular strength in the legs to waterski, which a lot of people don’t realize. It’s not just standing there passively while holding on to the tow rope and letting the boat pull one along..... There has to be mindfulness and attention to the water and to the wave and wake patterns and such.
     
  9. Mitch .. when are we going to see you on the slalom?
     
  10. Very nice indeed.
     
  11. Walter, I did give my son the camera when I skied two days ago. I haven’t gone through those, but I’m never optimistic.
     
  12. Like two peas in a pod, nice.
     
  13. Perfect
     
  14. Great photos, they can ski and smile, making it look effortless. Based on my one experience, it’s anything but effortless. I’m ok in a tube behind a slow boat.
     
  15. Thanks, Gordon. They both love this sport.

    Thanks, Randy. Great to have good subjects when shooting from a boat going 30mph!

    Thanks, Rick. The smiles come from all the fun.
