[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Our wild blue sea. Most days it's calm but on these particular days we pray the vacationers don't decide to get caught in a rip tide.

Incoming waves create an underwater sandbar close to shore, and the waves push more and more water in between the sandbar and the shore until a section of this sandbar collapses. All the excess water is forced through this gap, creating an extremely strong but narrow current away from the shore. In fact, rip tides are so strong that trying to swim back to shore against the rip tide current will only tire you out and make it that much more difficult for you to survive. Rip tides are narrow enough that if you swim parallel to shore, you can easily escape the current and then swim back to shore. RipTide

Hello Brenda,
A beautiful blue day indeed. Fabulous sea and sky and a pleasure to view. Well done.

PS: You image is a little small. Maximum permissible size is 800 mp onthe long side.

Hi Brenda,
Great exposure with a life-saving note!! Great depth and detail of my favourite Rugby teams colours, the BLUE BULLS. Well done,
Best regards,
Thanks for the link to "Rip Tide"

Good day/evening dear Brenda! How are you ? OK...Good! Well some says ..keep it simple and you will hit the nail in the head. In your case however, I feel that the simplicity has been in excess ...too abundant, to an extend that you can hardly see ..anything exciting ;) Love yourself and try harder next time my friend! Let me see you smiling ;))!!!

Hello Brenda,
I have been so busy lately that I haven't had the time to critique like I would like to. Your image shows a very active sea and some neat looking clouds, but like George stated doesn't seem to have an identifiable subject. HOWEVER!! Your subject is hidden beneath the waves as your notes so clearly state.
I viewed your RipTide site and must say I was Blown Away (pardon the pun)with the valuable information about this deadly occurrence. I have always heard about riptides, but never knew what they actually were or what caused them. Thanks to you and your image I now do. Thank you for this interesting and life saving information!!!
