A friend who is learning photography wanted to go on a shoot somewhere so I suggested the US National Whitewater Center for some action shots. The venue didn't fail us.
An unknown paddler was shredding a standing wave in the class 4 man-made rapids. I liked the results of slow shutter speed capturing high speed action on this shot.
Thanks for past comments. I will follow this shot with another that displays better the swift water adventure that is open to the public and Olympic athletes.

Awesome timing on this shot! So candid because we cant see the face, but perfectly focused for this motion blurr. A great choice to be featured in LWitG! :-)
