New year, new thread for your best photographic efforts. I hope the images will be kayak related.
I will kick this one off with a sail-surfing image

One of the magic places to paddle in Tassie. Mind you next day it poured, blew and was cold.

Geoff, it was a bit tricky with those soldier crabs.
I had a long lens stopped down to a relative small aperture to be able to get enough depth of field. There was beautiful late afternoon back light falling onto the crabs but enough reflection from the sand to not make them too silhouetted.
I was running after them with camera very close to the ground and had to shoot very fast before they would bury themselves.
Needless to say that I would certainly be less successful if I had to shoot with film and every click would cost money...

From a technical POV, certainly not a "great shot". It's from my phone housed in a waterproof pocket. Taken of Bird Rock, Walkerville just on sunset.

Well, it's my contribution for now.

Hey Simon,

Looks great to me! Captures the moment pretty well and gives the feel of being there in the kayak also. Makes me wish I was there too.

Just returned from a little wander up north. A 16 day expedition to the 1932 base camp of explorer Gino Watkins at Tugtilik in East Greenland. A fantastic trip, generally fine weather but considerations were water temperature (c.1 degree), often 15-20 kms between landing points, icebergs collapsing spontaneously and the wildlife :) Only the 4th kayak party to reach this place in the last 84 years. Bloody awesome.
