    I think he installed one of those overhead sprinkler systems and turns it on to get the shot. :D

    These are some of the best photographs I have ever seen on Smugmug!

    I just showed them to my family - and said this is why I cary the camera and like to shoot so much. Its a chance to someday get a shot like these.

    Very well done, thanks so much for sharing.

    Simply amazing, I only show my wife the best images on the web... She looked at these ones three times.

    Thanks for sharing and making me think the images I took on the weekend were just family happy snaps rolleyes1.gif

    Cheers.

    I was just off the bridge,shooting scenics when they came on the bridge. She was surprised when we were revealed for who we were mwink.gif

    Thats great. I love the super stealth mode, capturing the action as it happening (or making it appear as such with the last couple). Really an inspiration to where I would like to be heading with my non sports, people shots!

    Thanks for posting these.

    Oh my! Hahahaha. I have been most inconsiderate, and apologize profusely for my uber-jerkiness!

    And another thank you to those who recently responded that were not harmed or potentially harmed by my careless post rolleyes1.gif

    Making your own destiny, that is what separates the "good" from the "great" among us. True "greatness" in this thread. bowdown.gif

    Bravo and bravissimo Shay! thumb.gifthumbthumb.gif

    ... and you are so fortunate to have such a lovely and talented assistant! clap.gif


    (Jen, take a bow.) wings.gif

    Such a story this young couple gets to tell, and now to show! I hope they are blessed with children who can share in this story.

    Wow!

    These are spectacular. I really could not imagine a better storyline or the people behind the cameras who captured it.

    Bravo!

    Interesting, I found myself tearing up putting the post together. They were an emotional couple and that no doubt spills over into the photos!

    Thank you all for the comments!
