The back-lighting IS the impact. Great image with no luck involved. Just the perfectly lit moment captured by a fully prepared and skilled photographer.

Thanks Steve, I wish I could get some better weather this summer in Louisiana with this being one of the wettest, windiest and hottest with the heat index. Just standing behind the camera eye piece I sweat buckets in seconds.
The full sun is needed for the action shots and you need rubber boots to keep your feet dry. I only can stay out about a 20 to 30 minutes and I am wet head to toe with sweat. I have to heat the camera and lens with a hair dryer
to stop the sweating before I walk the door.
