Momentary Stillness

May 24, 2023,19:16 PM

Was able to slip out for a short paddle after laying my children down for bed yesterday evening. The fires far West of us have rendered the horizon a muted grey most evenings, and I wanted to try to capture the clarity of the water in opposition to the haze, but also managed to grab a shot of a common loon as it gave me a second to frame it against the infinite abyss beyond. I am pleased with how it turned out given my relative haste to arrange the photo before it dove down once again in search of dinner. 

Thanks for looking.

I occasionally bring my Canon when kayaking, but on the paddleboard it becomes too risky for water exposure.

Water stays cold until late-summer, have to wear a wetsuit as one would not last long falling in while offshore.

Funny you mention it, there is a gull which has a call distinctly reminiscent of that used in Jaws that I hear in the early AM, bringing back terrifying memories from childhood. Thankfully this is fresh water, and the only thing to fear are absent-minded ... 

Superb photos!

Both are excellent, kudos ...

The use of space in the first, and the depth / composition of the second (the tip of the board-boat adds depth). We all need a bit of private time, and this is my take-away from the series. Nice, Casey .

Much appreciated, Casey

The water looks so clear, and still as a mill pond, must have been a joy to paddle.
