Waiting for the tide.......

2 SUP boarders arrived by train complete with pre filled SUP boards,  but they got in too early and had to wait for the tide.


Taken with the Mini 3 Pro.

Great shots DA.    They were kind of like fish out of water until the tide saved them.

How long did you have to wait to catch them setting off?

That collection of boats surrounding their eventual departure was worth the wait for that shot alone, David.

Nice captures, thanks for sharing. It looks like the gate at the top of the ramp was closed, and they had the place to themselves.

Funny thing was I actually followed them from the railway station, they came out as I passed so I had to hang/hover about for a bit when I saw them setting up.    I probably caught them on my second flight so about 25 minutes.

thats right Aero,  the ramp is used for putting smaller boats in and out of the water and belongs to the marina so its not available for general use.

Do you mean the boat wrecks Mr B?    I was quite pleased with the sunset light in the shot too.

Ahh, so you stalked them.    J/K.  Turned out to be a great target of opportunity.  Good thing you have the extended battery.

Yes the four batteries certainly help,  especially when it comes to the flight distance.
