9. Drops of Water

Skiing barefoot!

Skiing barefoot!

In the winter season in Sarasota the Ski-A-Rees water skiing team performs each Sunday afternoon on the bay near the Mote Marine facility. The team is composed of some young skiers with a lot of athletic ability who are just learning to do the various formations and tricks on skis. Others on the team come from having had experience at different water-skiing venues throughout the United States. In this picture, a more experienced skier is skiing barefoot which requires the towing boat to be traveling at faster than normal speed coupled with a strong, athletic and experienced skier at the end of the tow rope. This skier fit the profile perfectly as he skied barefoot past the audience creating a great spray of water drops.

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.

  1. I have never seen anyone ski barefoot. Great shot!

  2. Thank you — it takes a strong skier to ski barefoot. A friend of my husband’s used to do this.
