  1. A nice photo for today's theme. I didn't recognize the windsurfer the first time I look at the photo. Seems like he's enjoying windsurfing.

  2. I have seen these wind kites pick people as high as 20 feet off the water...too much for me. Great shot, Grace.

  9. Love the composition. This would work well in B&W. Isn't this paragliding? Since I an unwilling to hang in the wind 5 meters above the ocean, I may not be entitled to an opinion.

  27. What a great shot! You are so right, he does look very tiny out there all by himself. He's a brave person. I could never do something like this. I'm not a deep water person at all.

  28. Wow, how beautiful, of course I would never wind surg but the picture is gorgeous. I would love to visit Australia but I'm afraid to fly so I will follow you and visit it virtually. Hello from a Sicilian in Rome.

  34. a good choice

    I'm too old for kite surf

  35. Have you ever tried that? I might have when much younger, but I wouldn't do it today. I get my thrills in other, less dramatic ways. Great action photo. I forgot the theme. As usual. Oh well. Working on setting up a new computer. That's always so much fun! :-)

  36. Fantastic! Excellent how you have captured the texture of the wind on the sea.
