Show Summertime in the Southern Hemisphere

Here is my contribution shot with my cropped sensor Nikon D90 but my not exactly compact 150-500 sigma. In the new year, I will get a Nikon to MFT adapter with aperture control and that will be totally mad!!!!

Now I have only had my Bigma for 2 weeks and the first time I tried to take it to the beach for some surfing shots there was no surf. A bit better this morning so I did these...

#1 I feel like I am right there. I think I could manage that as I wouldn't have to stand up

Not bad for a surfie pic novice. CC welcome.
Peter, thanks for starting this thread with your surfing "Bigma" shots! It's a wonderful counterbalance to our frigid fair in the northern climes.:th_salute:

I love to swim, forget about surfing unless it's going to be body surfing with a boogie board.:D
