    • I can still remember that overwhelming urge to run on a beach, though it’s something I haven’t even attempted in many, many decades.
      And for parents, an uncrowded beach remains one the few places you feel it’s safe to just let them fly…

    • Thank you but it was sheer good luck…
      It was one of those pictures where you suddenly grab your camera and, having no time to adjust any of the settings, shoot half-blindly in the hope of capturing just a glimpse of an energetic child in free flight.
