Summer has begun and so have the water sports. The first warm week brought plenty of fun shots of people looking for ways to stay cool. I headed to Riverbend Park in Oroville first, and later near the fish hatchery were I spotted a group of tubers. For the water park I tried to get real close to the kid's face to show his expression of joy. For the tubers, I was lucky enough to spot them while I was crossing a foot bridge along Table Mt. Blvd. I shot from right above them as they floated below me unsuspecting of my location. There are things I would change about each of these shots if I had the chance again. And I am sure that I will have plenty of chances to get these types of shots again.
