    Is this another ISO1600 shot?

    Oh, the water is soooooo nasty for sunburn - I'm assuming boating trip. (I used to go sailing, and learned the hard way). Hope the pain stops soon.

    (My trick sunscreen issues are a) forgetting the backs of my legs and b) forgetting my ears. Sunburn on the skin behind the knee is to be avoided at all costs!)

    I feel your pain Cat. Friday I went out and played golf and although I slapped a bit of screen on, I managed to not get it down towards my socks, so now I have big bright red rings around my legs. Very very painful to even walk!

    I was just as red the other day when out for a deive. I think most of my burning occured when I was in the car - eventually found a towel to put over me. The only thing I hate when I get a little too much sun - MORE FRECKLES!

    I hear aloevera is good for burns, just have to scrape the inside of the aloevera 'leaf' and smear it on the area, that should sooth the pain a bit...

    yeah that water reflection is a b*tch hey! I ended up with 3rd degree burns on the fronts of my shins a few years ago. Brody was a baby, he was sunscreened, the rest of the group we were with took off in the boat, and because i was pregnant with Abby I couldn't go so they dumped me on slipping sands ( a 45 degree hill of just sand) so all i could do was sit there the tomato worked a treat on that sunburn!
