Please, indulge with Florida all you want. I'm sick and tired of cold weather. Today we have -7C (19.4F) and it's dropping! Then people think of Italy as a warm sunny place... not in the North, anyway.

It seems to be a hard place for surfing.;This look like a struggle against the waves!

Cezar and Léia said...

well...thanks a lot! :)
I want to see more!
Awesome shot dear Brattcat, your pictures always surprises me!
Hugs

I will look at any photo where there's no snow, so keep the Florida photos coming.

B SQUARED said...

This is how we Floridians commute to work. True! No kidding.

Rambling Round said...

Keep on indulging us!

Leif Hagen said...

Ahhhhh, the ocean! Looks especially nice since I just came inside after snowblowing my driveway and sidewalk for 40 minutes!

Jacob said...

Hmmm. Wonder where this was taken...Florida usually doesn't have sufficient waves for decent surfing...

But I must say this is a terrific action shot! Sharp (look at that water) and colorful, too. Excellent work, Brattcat.

And thanks for your so very kind comments! I've been blushing all morning...

Sharon said...

There is a lot of churning water under that surfer!

brattcat said...

Jacob, this is Clearwater Beach. And I meant every word.

Hilda said...

Not something that scaredy-cat-me (begging your pardon for the phrase) would ever dare.

Fantastic photo!

Sunny said...

Great picture and a welcomed change from snow.
Sunny :)

Kate said...

Great action shot! If you want to see outstanding photos similar to your terrific photo today, visit Kala's Hawaiian blog.

Surf's up, dudes and dudettes.

This is a wonderful surfing photo, and I think it is even more remarkable in view of the fact that youwer on the Gulf Coast of Florida, not known for its surfing waves.

I think that after this vacation, you are now ready to take on the surfing waves of the Pacific in Tamarindo, Costa Rica or another surfing resort.

Jilly said...

Fabulous Brattcat. Like you I love Dave's shots. I think you'll have to go back to Florida soon!

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

I am somewhat relieved to know you are not on the surfboard.

Anya said...

You can do that also bratcat :-)
We are also a little sportive ...LOL

But is a FANTASTIC actionshot!!!

Amin said...

Wonderful picture.

Saretta said...

At first I was confused...could this be the frozen river of Brattleboro? Impossible!

Small City Scenes said...

I am sure you are still lusting after the sunny south as opposed to the frozen north. I would be too. Neat shot.

Birdman said...

I'm so envious! Nice action capture.

Christina Klas said...

what a great action shot!

Birdman said...

Clearwater? Kitty, has to be my favorite beach in the state. Great pier, lots of adult beverage joints wonderful places to just people watch.

cieldequimper said...

Marvellous shot, the colour of the water is amazing.

Amin said...

We live near Caspian Sea.It is difficult to find any surfer in our country.

Claudia said...

Great picture!

JM said...

Fantastic capture, great motion shot! This could also be 'Frolicking Oeiras-style', the thing is I never managed to get such a great photo... :-)

Julie said...

He does look wonderfully athletic! I love the complexity you have achieved with the photograph of this wave. Lovely detail.

Amin said...

Thank you for visiting to my blog.

In Real Life said...

Oooooooh, gorgeous! Warm, sunshiny, ocean picture - just wonderful!

Frank said...

Those wetsuits can be very restraining but warmth is what they're all about.

This is a super nice Flroida shot. Not much of this on the Gulf side but Florida does have all kinds of beaches and water to suit most tastes.

Keep posting Florida for as long as you like. Go, Bratt, go!!

Bob Crowe said...

I would never have thought so. We'll leave all of that to Dave. I'm looking to seeing the Pacific in a little over a week.

Paula said...

You're a Gidget, BC? That's a great surf shot, for sure.

magiceye said...

stunning capture!

Amin said...

I liked this picture very much.

VP said...

A spectacular shot, you could go on alternating local shots with some imported Florida.

Amin said...

Wonderful.

Lenola Daily Photo said...
