April 2018 Challenge:   In or On the Water

 

Water was a big component of my image from last month so it's my inspiration for this month's challenge.  Your images must be taken of something or someone on the water. More specifically:

It must be taken outdoors, on open natural water (e.g., lakes, ocean, rivers,  not a swimming pool),  and must be taken of something with people and/or animals in the water.  Not of inanimate objects without people or animals.   The photographer can be on the shoreline, but not the subject.

 

Up to 3 images, must be on Alamy.  Deadline midnight April 30, 2018, PST.

 

Some examples:

Have fun!

Do they have to be right on the water?  Can they be doing a watersport but not in or on the water but above the water?

 

Jill

 

Yes watersports are fine.

I was going to ask about canals because although the water is natural, the canal isn't! Then I saw Bryan has already posted a couple. Does this mean canals are OK Maria?

Well done on winning last month's challenge Maria, lovely photo, one of our cat sits in the sink and just peers out at the world as if that's totally normal behaviour ...

Anyway, three from me.

This thread is a constant reminder of how talented alamy's photographers are. Great images - and I am not one to give praise lightly. 

 

I believe everyone just tries to make the challengers final selection process as difficult as possible ;) :ph34r:

 

I fully agree with a lot of great pictures in this thread already. 

Difficult to select the best from one let alone weed out 8 finally.

Alright, canals are fine as well.  But more points for open water :)

 

There's a great selection of images already, keep them coming!
