p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Kayaking Sanibel Island New Years Day


I've decided to give the kayak thing a try with this being my first attempt at it yesterday.
I defiantly have new found respect for those on here that use this method for capturing birds. Being a kayaking newbie and having to deal with the very unstable platform (at least in my unskilled case) made for quite a challenge to stay locked on the birds.
Of course I would have to pick a windy day out in the middle of a fairly large body of water for the maiden voyage...
Sure was a lot of fun though and will defiantly be trying it a lot more in the future....
All taken on 'Tarpon Bay' at Sanibel Island, FL with my Canon 1DIII & EF 70-200 w/ 2X Extender except the first pic was with my iphone.





Small rookery island in middle of bay where all the pelicans were hanging out.

#2 for me Jim, kayak and camera were made for each other. It may be tough out in the open but sneaking along a shore line is a true joy.

Ok, so without saying it out loud...maybe a little trepidation on your first kayak adventure eh? No big lens, maybe not even the newest body? But heck, you did a great job and got some wonderful shots....I want to see the big gun next time, hand held with you standing at the bow like Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic...oh, maybe not such a great comparison in retrospect...anyway, lots of fun coming up I'm sure.

Thanks...I just sold my Z06...had lots of custom work done to it...used to really enjoy showing it and got quite a bit of TV & magazine exposure over the last few years....

The ones you are showing look great. Did you add anything to stabilize the boat?

Bouncing kayak on a windy day will always be an issue, regardless of skill. If you make it into a trimaran with stabilizers, then it will be more stable, but less fun to paddle (imo). Good job with the results.

Nice work for a first outing Jim! I think you learned your lesson about wind and open water
