Kite Surfer

Kite Surfer

A lone kite surfer flies through the water at Garrettstown Beach in County Cork a few weeks ago.

Last weekend with the good weather the beach was packed, but we were there when it was cold, rain drizzled, and a cold wind whipped up the fine sand everywhere. Place was deserted.

I like this photo. Made the trip worthwhile! 🙂

Aperture ƒ/3.5
Camera Canon EOS 40D
Focal length 18mm

    Great photo Donncha. The moody clouds and empty water show the commitment of the kite surfer. It reminds me of one of those motivational posters! 🙂

    What a sky! The menace and anger of it are well portrayed.
