Catching a Wave

A WAVE

Where : Sea Point Promenade , Cape Town Athlete : Mari Bester Photographer : Jeff Ayliffe
The Experience ( as seen on Facebook ): Jeff Ayliffe : I waited a while to get the moment of wave impact and a runner in frame . Derrick Frazer : Did you get the same runner to keep running past ? Jeff Ayliffe : Nope , just waited , hoping for a random bit of luck . Dean Hopf : Mari Bester , it is you ! Mari Bester : Whattttt !!!! Crazy ! Dankie vir dit !!!
 Jeff Ayliffe : I actually nearly chased you to see if you wanted me to send it , but I thought it would make me a bit of a stalker . I was hoping someone would recognise you . Mari Bester : Thank you so much for the photo , Jeff . I love it ! Gert Wilkins : Mmmm , Jeff , I wonder if you would be able to catch her .
