I take surf sport images around Niagara . Maybe one day we will catch you on the lower great lakes in Canada.

Here is a starter from Dec 11 2015.

Thanks George. Great guys out there. I will post a few more and if the interest is there will keep posting them.

Would like to do an afternoon session tomorrow if a driver with room for a windboarding photographer is going through St. Catharines on the way to Lake Erie let me know. I would then post reduced for internet sized shots here.

D810 - wow
36 megapixels
i have a D200 with 7 megapixels n love it
but i can see where the upgrade helps
my zooms come from my FE and thus NO auto focus
equipment helps !!
NICE RESULTS
do u have a blog or website ??

one more question :)

=====================
Thanks. Yes we all love our toys....

I do not do video at this point. While I do like video a lot I still prefer stills as I can stare at them as long as I like and there is no frame blurring. I also find that video is often one time only but I keep coming back to stills

Images are all taken as stills.

Posting some new images soon. Some will be freestyle stuff which is my dream. Cannot capture too many well-executed rotations.
