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.
