Losing It

While riding the “Lady of the Lake II” Lake Chelan in Washington, I caught this Jet Skier lose his grip as he was jumping the wake behind the ship. Even though the Nikon D3x does not have the high speed burst rate of the D3, sometimes you get lucky. It appeared that he was OK once his companion made it to his position.
