Photo: On the Surface

Image

 

Kayaking in the Middle Keys last fall, still photo taken with my GoPro. This photo captures what I like best about kayaking; the sensation of being directly on the surface of the water, moving almost soundlessly through the water, and really disappearing into the landscape of water and sky. Because the kayak is so quiet, it’s amazing for seeing birds, fish, turtles – I even had dolphins near my kayak a few weeks ago in the Savannah/Tybee area (but didn’t get a photo, dang it). I love it, and it’s worth the sore arms and non-graceful exit from  the boat ( I invariably wind up just rolling over and flopping onto the dock or beach like the world’s largest two-year-old; it’s so embarassing…)
