I think you did well under the windy conditions Jim. Try to get out early before the wind strengthens, and stay on the lee side if you can ~ Ron

Very nice. Especially for your first kayak outing. I cannot wait to try and get out this weekend in my yak with the camera for the first time.

Once you get relaxed knowing just how far they rock side to side you will realize you would have to work hard to tip one since you sit below the waterline Now if you are on a 'sit-on-top' model it may be different and the motion more pronounced. Either way you will get comfortable Jim and do fine!

Just look at the great angles you are getting from the yak, wow these are super sweet buddy #2 is quite a cool image and then again the Z06 shot is 'on fire'!

Take care and enjoy
Karl

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....

NIce ride. I like that shot a lot. I am about to get a C6 Zo6 in jet black. My friend does a lot of work on them and specializes in suspension work but I am tossing on heads, cam and intake as soon as I get it. I used to have a few fast mustangs but I am bored of those and I have gone German the last few years and ready to come back to American cars. German cars are nice but rather devoid of character and passion. The C6 Zo6 is just a bonkers car in every way, and if you try to step out of line just a little bit, it will kill you, and I like a car that has it out for me.lol Makes me feel like I have to tame a beast every time I drive it.

#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.

Thanks for the comments and pick Rob....

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.
Eric


Hey Eric, I was wound up tighter than tick but having lots of fun with it nonetheless....didn't really have a clue what I was doing . ...thanks for starting my morning off with a laugh...got a kick out of your comments especially the DiCaprio reference ....

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


Thanks Morris....it's a Freedom Hawk Pathfinder Kayak and has built in rear stabilizers....kind of like a kayak with training wheels so-to-speak... ...the rear outriggers can be adjusted to three different positions with just a flip of the side levers... it's made for stand up fishing but I figured it would make for a great photo shooting platform too....

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.


Thanks Ken...it has built in adjustable rear stabilizers...you might have seen it before.
