Dave Sandborn got his first camera when he was nine years old. Today he is an International award winning photographer. He has a special fondness for taking pictures in the ocean. Sharks are one of his specialties. He says: "I love sharks. I have had a fascination with them since I was a kid."

His shark pictures are amazing, but it's his series of Lake Erie photos that have been lighting up the internet. What makes them especially eye-catching is that the dramatic images look more like ocean waves than those found in the lake.

Dave admits, "I have a lot of friends here that have never seen the lake like that, I say that's because you go on a sunny day. You don't go when it's 70 mph winds and raining sideways and there are waves that are 20 feet high."

To get the photos Dave heads out a couple hundred feet into the water, in the Fall of the year when the lake is pretty wild. You can purchase his prints at his website
