South Silver
    South Silver season was winding down this weekend, at least for my low flow tolerance. So we had to enjoy the abnormality the fun, short and steep run is. Camping out up there and not driving too much was a nice bonus. I shot a bit of kayaking and broke a new lens in the process. Always a shame. More than taking pictures of kayaking I enjoyed shooting one of my favorite subjects, the night sky. Shooting stars is no easy matter if you want them to be still, and a reminder of why I drag so much weight around with a heavy camera :)

And of course a little kayaking never hurt anyone. Thomas Moore and Rok Sribar routing through.
