I photographed this Golden Retriever doing what he loves - retrieving something from the water. This dog took a flying leap off a dock to retrieve a ball.
Located at Torch Lake in Northern Michigan, I was standing in the water to get the shot.

This is Thomas Degasperi on Day 3 of the Malibu Open, men's slalom finals. He is rounding a buoy on the far side of the tow boat.
I was shooting from the safety boat during intermittent light rain and persistent heavy overcast. It required a high ISO setting. This image looks pretty cool when enlarged because the skier is in focus while the boat is nicely blurred.

This series is from the jumping event on Saturday at the Malibu Open. The landing was hard and shook up the skier but he recovered without injury.
I had the motor drive set to the slow speed. There is one frame after the skier touches the water but there is nothing to see but spray.

Here is one of the jumpers at the Malibu Open pro waterski tournament at the moment he left the ramp. The sunshine helped make the skier stand out from the darker background but it got mostly overcast for the rest of the day.
I was kneeling in shallow water and panned with the skier as he got higher.
