A Wednesday morning Kayak with my wife - Falls Lake, Raleigh NC



If anyone wants to see any of these larger, I can post - this is linked to a gallery on my website. The one of the baby herons being fed is quite something...thanks to the big zoom on my Canon power shot!

1. Nice shots. Now I want to take another canoe trip.

Very cool seeing the heron family!

2. I second that

 

I agree, the young herons are icing on the cake.
Very lucky to get that.

3. The feet on the Kayak tell the story best.

That's a great emotionally satisfying shot, with the birds on the horizon.
I'm amazed you were able to capture such diverse shots of animals, the turtle, the babies. Varied, fun, and a great tale.
Here, not far from you, our lake has been drained this year so the dam can be rebuilt. They are almost done, I went on a 2 hour bike ride to check it all out day before yesterday.
They drained the lake for the very year I had to heal my broken humerus.
Some may call this co-incidence. I call it synchronicity.

My little thrift store kayak is hanging up, waiting.

5. These are some mighty fine shots

and what wildlife! Glad you had your camera with you.

I just go off the river myself and we saw deer this morning! Bonus!

7. we've had our bumps along the way, and still do...

but we do try to find beauty in nature, do stuff that interests us, and it helps us get over the bumps. Each day I do recognize that I am a pretty lucky person, though!

8. We can always weather the bumps in life

if we recognize and embrace what is truly important. I'm not going to worry about you any more--you've got it down!

11. I used my SX10 IS for those - also have an SX30 IS which

has a better zoom, but not as good a macro. I kind of alternate use of both. Often take the older one on the kayak - flipped once and killed my first Powershot!
