p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Recent shots from the kayak


Congratulations to Colin F for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 9 votes - View Previous Winners


I recently hauled out the kayak for the first time since last summer. Carrying it to & from the shore is getting more difficult, as my balance and walking gets a little worse, but once I'm in, it's all good. I will put it away soon for the winter, and hopefully I can manage it next summer too.

Here's some recent shots taken from the kayak, all using the Sony 200-600 with 1.4 extender on A1

A beautiful set of images Colin. I have been thinking about getting a kayak to shoot from. Your shots confirm it would be a great thing to do.

Killer shots every one of them, such a different and interesting perspective from shooting from a Kayak.

All great images with beautiful lighting. It looks like birds react differently to a kayak and are not as skittish. Those photos certainly created the temptation to go out and buy a kayak. The floating feather is a nice closure to the series.

Thanks Dave. I use a small (10') plastic kayak, and only go out when it's dead calm. It certainly opens up some photo opportunities.

Fantastic as usual Colin!
I particularly like the final shot. It's what my friend and I would call "dining room print worthy"

I find the lone feather is unexpected, creative and beautiful. Glad you included it. The birds are certainly great as well.

Thanks Louie. Yes, it'll be a sad day when I can't do it anymore.
