Do you like this interpretation of one of my shots...?

If you freestyle near St. Catharines ON let me know and we can post some shots of you here.

Hey Niagara Mike!

Nice van....was gawking at the stickers and when i pulled alongside...'i know that name'.

If you were scouting out MCP (a block away)...you aint going to find conditions like in your photos! Bit pedestrian our neck of the woods.

Keep the photos coming!

Were you out on the water?

Thanks.

Poor Cliff... NiagaraMike wants action shots and the conditions are just barely enough to even windsurf ... so he does a move and falls and Mike posts it...

Better shots of Cliff can be seen earlier in this thread and some will come later. A Skilled windsurfer Cliff is. I think CLiff will be laughing the hardest at this.

Could not get the GIF to load directly into this area so here is the clickable to see it.

Ok... I wondered if MCP might have been a different kind of acronym for MuniCPpal Beach.... :oops:

I am from North St. Catharines and that is where we were ...

Too funny. I was not where you suggested... that was Greg's van with my image. Nice spotting and connection though!

Thanks for your replies!

You mean the ones that were taken on the 16th and you expected them on the 17th? ROFLMAO.

Heck even paid photographers do not produce images that fast. :wink:

All 'joking' aside...

I am working on them. I sort them then process them in Adobe Lightroom software first then into Corel PSPx8 then put them into Photobucket then here.

In time... I think there are a few nice ones in there... esp. those wipeouts you mentioned!

Jean Franco at La Salle on March 16. Nice mild day and an ice free lake ON. Great sunshine day with difficult mostly SW to WSW winds that were gusty and kept changing strength.

Thanks Sandro! We had cooperative light for part of the time that day and good water colour and waves.
