kayak trip

Just got back from a couple days of kayaking and camping on the east side of Georgian Bay with some friends. Here are a few shots.
[all with EOS 1DSm2, EF 17-40mm lens. Singh-Ray warming circular polarizer]

1) Waterlilies - To get this shot, I hung over the side of my kayak and dangled the camera at water level. Unable to see what I was shooting through the viewfinder, I'd take a shot, review on the LCD, then try again. It took about 30 tries to get it right.

2) Kayaks - sunset on the shore of our camp. 3-stop soft edge ND grad.

3) My friends' dog "Gunner", a big, lovable bull mastif. Very rare to capture a moment where there wan't a long string of drool hanging from his mouth. Fill flash at -2/3.


  1. You are braver than I Ethan for that kayak lily shot. I would have for sure dumped the thing! Very cool perspective.

  2. Great Lilly shot. Where did you camp? that dock looks like it is from our lake!
