Yeah - and even surprisingly well coordinated! Thanks for the message.

Behind The Lens

Location
On Chiemsee, a big lake that is a little way east of Munich, Germany.
Time
In the middle of the day.
Lighting
A nice, bright summer's day!
Equipment
Canon 70D with 18-55mm lens - hand held.
Inspiration
This was a sailing trip out for some of the Munich Cricket Club players, organised by the captain on the left, so they could have some fun doing a different sport, with me along to teach them some of the sailing basics. After a nice morning sail, the wind then inevitably died, and so they decided to anchor and do some swimming before going for lunch at a restaurant on a nearby island - tough day! With competitive sports people, it was perhaps inevitable that they tried their best to do coordinated, artistic leaps into the water from the back of the boat. After a couple of tries they achieved this one, which is at least getting close to being presentable! So this image also ended up being included in their next match report, as it showed their pre-match training session!
Editing
No editing was done to this image.
In my camera bag
I still use this Canon 70D with 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses, along with a screw on macro lens. I also use a monopod for taking cricket shots, but not for a shot from a boat like this.
Feedback
I can only really say, take any opportunity to do something a bit different and make sure you take your camera along!
