  3. Wow five skips on a first try is impressive as is the stop action. Well thought out.

  8. I agree – love the skips stopped mid-flight – did you get one more out of that rock? I was skipping stones at the river yesterday but didn’t think to take a photo – I will now!!

  10. I would love to learn how to skip stones. I’ve never been able to or known anyone who could.

  11. I’d say you are a master at this as well as in the recording….great post!

  12. Thanks, guys! LOL I must say I captured this skip but did not also throw it! I’m definitely not that good. No ambidextrous multitasker here. This skip was one of the kids’ successes. The only thing I wished was that the little stick hadn’t been floating there. Oh, well. I was very excited when I saw I caught the rock in the air, though. @Gisele & Theresa: I could NOT skip rocks until I was an adult! It always eluded me no matter how I tried (lousy hand/eye coordination I guess), but these kids picked it right up, the scoundrels! 🙂

  15. That’s a great capture! Love the movement and the progression from ring to ring – and the rock still visible in that big splash.

  16. One of those simple little pleasures…haven’t done it for years…but have fond memories of summer visits to the lake and skipping stones. Grea capture!

  17. I’m a bit sorry to read that you didn’t skip and shoot this but love it anyway. An important skill to have, no matter when you ace it.

  18. Very nice capture! Ulterior motives in teaching them to skip rocks?!
