Grabbed these shots on quite a challenging run.

Paul,

Some really nice action shots. I agree with Scott that this must have been a real challenge.

Thanks, these were taken on part of the River Thames in the UK. Not the best of rivers for this kind of thing but can be good when the rivers high and fast. We have seen a fair bit of flooding in the past twelve/eighteen months and once in a while I get lucky with the right conditions.

The technique I use is the good old fashioned predictive focus, once locked in view its just a case of lots of gentle feathering of the baby keeping them in shot you do need to be a little quick though.

Planning on doing a lot more this winter, along with martial arts and ice hockey.

Paul
