This had been a lot of fun, trying my skills against a steep slope, slipping and sliding and sand everywhere ruining any good camera - and one does not find a willing model everyday to capture doing dune surfing! These sand dunes are also called the "roaring sands" because of the sound, not unlike a lion emanating from the sands under ones feet.

Thanks to Rachelle for being patient and willing - I can only hope I captured the energy, motion and youth well.

Thank you for your constructive comments on the previous upload:

Hmmm - ek kan dink aan 'n paar ander plekke wat ook vol sand is na so 'n afwaartse skaats!!!!
Fantastic action shot Piet. Well done to you and your model. It looks like great fun! :)

From the title, I thought the photo would be a lion in a sandy part of the Kalahari! I think I like this one better. Rachelle sure is having fun posing for Oom Piet!That's what makes it a super capture.

What a fabulous catch! I LOVE the wave of sand coming at you. My first thought was look at that genuine smile - she is having a blast! Then I thought of your lens... Lastly - LOL@Carin - gmta!!

This is a fun shot .. I'd love to try sand surfing myself! Oh, and I too must have a great mind :D (sand sou kry in plekke waar ek wil eerder nie sand in! ;) )

A wonderful motion capture with lovely clarity and Rachelle is a very good sport and she probably had a great time too.

This is so much fun. Sure she is enjoy every moment of it. The 'splashing' sand is cool.
