To the river! One of
the blessings of having a local contact is the ease of logistics. Yoshi, the owner of Spirit
man. Our whole trip wouldn't have been possible without him.
A little overnight
I guess I'd had my head in the
sand about scenery
in Japan. I didn't expect it to be anywhere as gorgeous as it
was. Lots of green and nice color contrasts.
Ideally I'd like to have used
both a grad nd and polarizer to really pull the color out of the trees
in the below image. But it was overcast and too dark for that, plus in
kayaking there is never anyone that
patient. Still the image would look better with the reflections in the
Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-300VR @ 70mm 1/800 f/4.5 ISO 1600
The mission of the day was a quick park and huck slide, a good way to
clear off jet lag. We thought flows would be higher with the
precipitation, but you can't win 'em all.
