Two things I remember clearly. First of all we didn’t have the fantastic autofocus and digital capabilities we have today. It wasn’t easy framing the shot and focusing on the action before the surf intruded. Secondly, I had made sure to leave my camera bag above the water line so it would stay nice and dry. As things were winding down, I looked back up just in time to see a black poodle lifting its leg and peeing all over my bag, as its master just stood there and watched!
But we got the shot. It was a great cause. And it did win awards….
