Wow! They look pretty good at balancing -- certainly better than I could ever do! Fun shot for the day, Carolyn! Enjoy your day!

I like how you worked all your themes into one photo.
It is indeed a great balancing act.

Perfect for all your themes! :D

I am impressed at how well they are balancing. Great shot and perfect choice for B.

Paula Scott said...

Amazing how that image looks like a painting,. It definitely tells a story!

jay said...

It's a shame they didn't have blue water to balance on, isn't it?

Fun image, though, especially with the sailboat on the other side of that wall!

How wonderful to balance all your themes in one picture. Very creative.

Granny Smith said...

You did an impressive balancing act as well by fulfilling all three prompts in one photo

Scott said...

You covered a lot of ground with that one photo. Great job- But today's Tuesday isn't it? Anyway I'll bet it's a real trick to keep those balanced.

I could sit on the sand and watch them all day.

stan said...

i hear tt sport is not as easy as it looks.

Birgitta "foto CHIP" said...

Interesting shot! Is the water in different levels in front of and behind the stones?

Fascinating photo! Balanced - both the men and the rocks.

Manang Kim said...

That boulder rocks are good to catch tiny crabs and shells. I used to do that when I was a kid hehe! Thanks for the visit!

I saw this type of water sport the first time only in May, while we were in Hawaii.

Indrani said...

Wonderful shots, so perfect for all the memes.

Gayle said...

I never get tired of places like Dana Point and Laguna Beach. Perfect spots for picture taking.

Sherri said...

The blue of the sails and the red shirt are so striking against the grey of the sky and rock! Very pretty picture! Happy Outdoor Wednesday! Sherri : )

Tes said...

Lovely clear photos. The boulders created a beautiful background -very artsy! :)

Luna Miranda said...

great contrast of water and rocks. have a wonderful day!

'Tsuki said...

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Linda said...

Great photo and I bet that is hard to do!!

Martha Z said...

I've watched people doing this. I think it would take about two seconds for me to land in the water if I tried it.

Vicki ~ FL said...

Not for me thank you. I did notice that the rock formation right in front of them (the tannish one) looks like a large leatherback sea turtle trying to climb to the top. Since I love sea turtles that just jumped out of the picture for me.

caite said...

those are some big rocks..I assume it is a breakwater?

Wendy said...

Dana Point is gorgeous and what a great balancing action shot you grabbed! Thank you :)

Carol said...

Love this shot, Carolyn, but I don't think I would try this type of boating! The red always commands attention in a photo, but that bit of blue peeking out from behind the rocks is also pretty showy. The rocks themselves make a nice pattern!

Linnea W said...

Looks like so much fun! I love how you captured this with a bit of the blue sail peeking out from behind the breaker wall. Excellent shot!

eileeninmd said...

Great capture! I would really have trouble trying to balance on a surfboard.

Rick said...

They look like they've done this before! Lovely colours - especially the rocks - oh, and the sailboat, of course!

Troy - ABC Wednesday Team said...

As a basically imbalanced kind of guy, this is way out of my league. But they look like they have it down pretty good.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday Team, thank you for joining us for Round Seven. I am looking forward to seeing your posts each week, as we work our way through the alphabet.

Dave said...

the soft vignette definitely works in this picture, those rock formation is way cool.

Jim said...

Hi Carolyn ~~ I am wondering where you were when you took this? I am gussing on the other side of an inlet.
If they fell (us old folds worry about things like that) they would have skinned or broken knees like I get.
Great picture. Happy MW Blues. Thank you for peeking in. I am finding time this week to answer comments. Please come back and look around. :)
