Theme Day: Water

The Theme Day for April is 'water'. The photo I've selected was a fun one to take. That is my son jumping into the water. He was jumping off of a rock into one of the lakes in the BWCA. The height from the rock to the water was about three to four feet. This gave me a great vantage point to take this shot. I believe this was my sixth attempt to get the capture I was looking for. My son was more than willing to jump into the water, wouldn't you if you were nine years old?

There are many more cities participating in today's theme day photo. Please stop by their photo sites and say hello. Let them know that Slinger from Twin Cities Daily Photo sent you. Do give everyone around the world a chance for their timezones differences to see all of the city photos.

Excellent Photo!
My 9 yr. old son also loves the water. Lakes, pools, ponds.... it doesn't matter - he loves them all (I think Grandpa and Grandma's lake in Northern MN is his favorite though).

Cheers to your son! What a trooper...I guess all relatives of a photographer have to have patience, courage, and great smiles.

A family picture that we can enjoy!! beautiful.

Dusty Lens said...

A great capture, what a fun shot! And the water is so clear, not the typical root beer color in many of the BWCA lakes.

Ben said...

Agree! What a fun shot! I can hear splash sound. Did he try jump in to the water on his back, so we can see his expression? Either way I can see you and your son had a very good time together.

Steve Buser said...

Amazing shot. What action!
