Sunset Kitesurfing in Aruba
So it's almost 7:00PM and 7:05 is sunset. The beach in Aruba is orange, yellow and tan hues from the setting sun. Some say to push the exposure +.25 but I won't. This is what it looked like in person when I took the photo, Damm the graphs! I want to keep it real. This is what it REALLY looks like when you kitesurf in the Sunset in Aruba! Reality, Not PhotoShop :) took this up to my neck in water to get this perspective and it was wirth it. The 7D has proven to be better than the 1DX for some sports shoots for color in various lighting conditions. The 1DX has failed me with mirror box issues so often that the 7D is now my backup camera of choice in tough, hard, environments to get the job done!

Yes I'm in the water up to my neck taking this! The 7D and the 70-200 f/2.8 USM IS II are tough. Sand, wind, water, sweat and splash.... Got home... gave it a pro-cleaning and it's ready for more ;) Canon makes GREAT products! Now all I have to do is learn how to use them!
