Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

How to get this in a photo, with no explanations is going to be hard, so I’m not going to try. These boys tried and tried and succeeded in staying up on as the surfed. I spit second of time was captured,  Re-surfing from under the wave


A threshold is a point of entering; that point just before a new beginning — that split-second moment in time, full of anticipation. All the hard work is over; relief is palpable.

  • CONTEXT: The surroundings, circumstances, environment, background or settings that determine, specify, or clarify the meaning of an event or other occurrence
