Airborne

Last weekend the weather down here in Port Elizabeth was absolutely awesome and we went out to Maitlands and climbed up the giant Maitlands dune. Chaos Boy was leaping down the steep parts of the dune and I couldn't resist the opportunity to get a couple of shots of him being airborne. I love both the shots, but personally prefer the one with the sun in just a bit more.

  2. I prefer the first too. You can see the joy in his face.

    He looks to sweet and cuddly to cause toooo much chaos.

  7. Both are great shots - I'm not sure I don't favour the first one a little, though, seeing his face and how the sand is swept up by his feet.
