This Was Taken off The California Coast Not to Far South Of Malbu. We where Visiting My Opa (Grandpa in german) And Decited To Go To The Beach For A Morning Walk With My Family. My Brother Spoted Out The Car Window That He Saw Things Playing In The Waves I Looked And Saw Nothing. So i Told Him He Was Lieing. Then I Looked Again And Saw The Dolphins I Whiped Out My Camera And Snaped A Few Shots. At That Time I Did Not Relize I Had A Thing Called Digital Zoom So I Just Zoomed In All The Way That I Thought I Could And Came Out With This. Would Have Been Better If I Did Not Have To Resize It And If I knew I Had Digital Zoom. The Wave Is At An Angle Because The Wave Broke To The Right First And Was Working To The Left But If You Look At The Horizon It Is Close To Being Straight For not Using A Tripod. :) Thanks For Looking

Wow Erika
Nice that you were watching the waves to see these dolphins (I'm gussing) Nice colours and composition. It's a bit off tilt though. Still a nice shot.

That's really an amazing shot, clever to have the camera handy at a moment like this!

Hi Erika,
Great action and well captured. About the digital zoom. Never us it, it will degrade your photo. It is best to get out of the car and walk down the beach. The slanted horizon has been mentioned. Maybe a run through a noise reduction program would help as well.

Erica, this is incredible! Brava, really! Such a capture! Say thanks to you brother too! :)
