I am especially fond of how you turned a Lake O. winter day into something that looks like a warm afternoon in the Caribbean! Nice "fake" job..

Can you also turn up the water temperature for the rest of us wimps? :)
Best,

Marek
Maybe not SO "fake" afterall?

Nice pictures, looks a little chilly, must be some good wetsuits.

It was May but early May after a long cool spell. Surprising thing is if you look at Adam through his sail... he is not wearing any mitts.

Thanks for your post.

Boy has it ever been a busy season lately. I am having some issues with photobucket at times... stability...

SO I started an Instagram account. I wish I knew how to do folders on it to keep the sports separate but hope you can do a quick pick of what you might want to see and comment here if you like.

Thanks for looking at my work!

I wonder if any hardy freestyle sailors will be out on Friday Jan 27 2017 morning at Port Weller ... I hope to take some images to post on Instagram and reference here. Weather is a big factor but it if stays as predicted to be partly sunny and above freezing, I am interested in trying.... about 8 or 9 am latest. Hope to get some great freestyle stunts. Thanks!

Lake Erie today should be insane... maybe too insane?

Blowing sand and too high water levels might make it tough for this photographer and for you guys with the insane high gusts.

But I am still going and will look for images of craziness and stunts out there and then at Crystal Beach dock mid afternoon when the point break fires up.

Thanks for looking.

Please note: I repeat that I do not sell or share my images except to magazines where we are both glad to see you. Period. I am using top of the line pro grade equipment and my costs are simply way too high for me to sell them at any low price some here might expect. I am pleased to share on instagram and here but should that not be good enough please tell me when I am shooting to not shoot you and I will gladly comply and if I mess up in a crowd I will discard the same ASAP. I am here to support the sport and my hobby. Please remember what wedding photographers ... often with less expensive equipment ... charge for a few hours. When the respect of expectations goes both ways everyone is happier. It is funny how people can be insulted when I refuse to accept their offer of $5 to $10 for an amazing digital negative that might be my best for many days out shooting ( in conditions that sensitive equipment cannot take and often results in expensive cleanings ) but they rarely consider the insult to me.... TO be worth while for my efforts I would not take anything less than the cost of a long wedding photography session.
Please do not expect from others what you would not deliver yourself.

NOTE Photobucket has changed its rules so I cannot post my images from their website images directly here. HOWEVER.

http://s1069.photobucket.com/user/Great ... t=3&page=1

and of course instagram....

https://www.instagram.com/niagaramike2000/

contain all of the images... please NOTE.... images of windsurfing are in my mix of other local water sports. I used to separate them out before photobucket changed their rules and I do not use them any more.

Thanks!
