2010 European Water Ski Chamionships

I was very lucky to hear about this competition, and that it was taking place close to my home, and it free.  I have never photographed water skiing before, but I thought it should be straight forward:- long lens, fast shutterspeed.  Its not that easy at all to get an interesting picture.

In the morning we were entertained by the tricks cometition.  each competitor does two runs past the judges hut.  One run is a hand tow, the other a foot tow.  During each run the cometitor has 20 seconds to put in as many tricks as they can.  Here is one of the photos I took:-

In the afternoon, we had the ladies Water ski jumping competition.  After a while this became quite boring, but it was a challenge to capture a decent photograph, the speed of the jumper combined with trying to focus accurately was really hard.

What I am pleased about, though was actually going out and taking some photos, that were enjoyable.  mars bars, onions and bananas don’t really float my boat photogrphically.
