There’s nothing like watching the kids wakeboard at the lake.

Streaking along the water with a breathtaking combination of power and grace…I could watch them for hours while they conquer the elements.  Mastering the dance of balance and strength to get up and out of the water.  Watching T-man skip back and forth, jumping the wake and landing with a gleeful smile.  They exude a pride in themselves that’s beautiful to see.

We spent some time on the water over Memorial Day weekend, and there was this one run that brought Bear right past the dock.  I was shooting photos, trying to master focus and lighting, when I noticed a heron swooping along behind her.  It was a breathtaking moment – Bear flying across the water with the heron in her wake – a snapshot of nature and my girl intertwined.
